Barefaced Stories: What’s Your Story?

WHAT’S YOUR STORY? Personal storytelling workshop with Andrea Gibbs (ABC, Barefaced Stories)

Everyone’s got a story to tell – what’s yours?

Done right, stories have the power to do extraordinary things. They make us laugh, cry and move us in ways we can sometimes never expect.

This is a hands-on creative development perfect for dipping your toes into the personal storytelling waters.

Through a series of written & verbal exercises, facilitator Andrea Gibbs will help you FIND YOUR STORY; a story that’s worth telling and one that will connect with your audience.

She will give expert feedback along the way, and very clear steps on how to CRAFT YOUR STORY to make it pop!

Walking you through her personal template for structuring a truly audience-worthy story, you will be armed with the confidence to give it a go yourself.



FIND YOUR STORY: 1.00 – 5.00pm Saturday 27 November 2021

CRAFT YOUR STORY: 1.00-5.00pm Sunday 28 November 2021

NOTE: The workshop takes place over two sessions.  Participants must be able to attend both sessions.  There is a break between sessions to allow participants time to develop/refine their stories. The class size is limited to allow maximum individual attention & storytelling practice time for each participant.

Suitable for both beginners & advanced, age 16+.
