Transporting Tales

Transporting-Tales-420x335As part of the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival, the Monash Fairy Tale Salon, a staff and postgraduate reading group at Monash University, will be hosting a day exploring fairy tale migrations, with a special focus on Australian tales. Fairy tales cross oceans and continents. How do people carry their tales with them? How are tales transformed by migration? In particular, how have fairy tales come here to Australia and how is our own fairy tale tradition based on migration?

This Melbourne event explores many of the ideas that will be raised at the Australian Fairy Tale Society conference to take place on June 9 in Sydney.
The four-hour event will include academic papers as well as fairy tale readings and performances. For the bold at heart, come dressed as your favourite fairy tale character and be in the running to win a prize! This free event is open to anyone who has a love of fairy tales, and will take place on Sunday June 29, from 1pm-5pm, at the Theatrette, Glen Eira Town Hall, Hawthorn Road, Caulfield.
