About Centre for Stories

Centre for Stories is an inclusive arts and cultural organisation that uses storytelling to encourage a more inclusive society and improve wellbeing.

Centre for Stories was founded by John and Caroline Wood in 2015. It is committed to telling stories that reflect the diversity of the human experience and bring communities together to engage in a conversation about issues that matter. It is a place where people gather to learn the craft of storytelling and to share stories. With our help and support, people have spoken and written of love, loss, belonging, home and hope.

Our stories are shared online, at live events, in publications, at dinners, festivals and in theatre productions. We hold events at our heritage home in Northbridge, collaborate with partner organisations locally and nationally, and take our storytellers to regional WA and national festivals. Our programs are funded by Australia Council, Ian Potter Foundation, State Library of Western Australia, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Department of Foreign Affairs, and private donors.
