Teaching The Art and Power of Story... With Story

Kate Lawrence, Whitehorse Manningham Libraries, Remarkable Women Project
Kate’s presentation was masterful, intriguing and pitch perfect for our audience. The story that Kate put together was intriguing and showed just how much work and care she put into crafting it. It was a great collaborative process to work with Kate and we’d love to have her again.

Kate was a guest story-teller at the launch of the Vocal Ranges Festival 2016. This is a new, annual event in Kyneton, Central Victoria, that celebrates the vocal arts through participation and performance.

Kate’s stories were adventures into funny and poignant experiences, and accessible to all. Kate also spoke about the magic and power of a story experienced as a shared imagination. Above all, Kate’s passion for storytelling and its role in culture was an inspiring addition to the festival launch, and we hope that she can share her skills for our audiences next year!
