Clarence City Council’s Story Festival is council’s annual week-long celebration of community, diversity, and sharing and is held in Autumn on Hobart’s sunny Eastern Shore.
Following on from its triumphant inaugural offering, Story Festival’s second iteration will build on the success of last year’s event to deliver a program packed with an even more diverse range of workshops, stalls, performances, shared meals and cultural exchanges.
The 2023 Stort festival is proud to announce that it is deepening its partnerships with local businesses and engaging with more Clarence locals by holding most of the festival at the Grace Centre in Rokeby.
The festival has also partnered with the Clarence Plains Market to deliver an action-packed day of food, handicraft stalls, and performances from 10am-2pm on Saturday the 20th of May.
The Story Festival aims to facilitate meaningful cultural exchange and skill sharing in a format that allows for true interpersonal connection.
Instead of festival goers passively watching a display or purchasing an item, Story Festival-goers form an integral part of the festival experience by actively participating with and engaging in intercultural skill sharing, cultural exchange, and story-telling via small workshops, communal meals, and intimate events.
The Story Festival is fully funded by Clarence City Council.
The 2023 Story Festival runs from 16 – 20 May and is jam packed with workshops, performances, and countless opportunities to share in meaningful cultural experiences.
