Older residents of Boroondara are invited to share their memories in an exciting and entertaining creative arts event, ‘Telling Tales’ Reminiscence Circle and Theatrical Presentation.

The theme is ‘Stages of Life’ - early childhood, school days, work, family and retirement.

Participants choose which stage of life they would like to reminisce about and bring along photos, songs and artefacts relevant to their memory.

Stories will be recorded by oral historian, Dr Vivienne Nicholson and then approximately eight of the participants will be invited to join in a theatrical presentation from a script of their stories developed by Evelyn Krape.
