This event takes place on the unceded lands of the Gadigal Peoples. 

When joining this event, we ask that you walk mindfully, with humility and respect for the Traditional Custodians, their knowledge, culture and Elders, both past and present. We pay our respects and gratitude for what is, was and always will be, Aboriginal Land 

Glebe is a special place with many stories to tell. Local stories don’t just tell us about place, they share with us the importance of place to the people who live, work and learn there… 

In Glebe, the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander community speaks of resilience, culture, strength and connection to more than 65,000 years of community, Eldership and knowledge. 

The local social housing residents speak of collaboration, social justice and enduring battles against gentrification in our Glebe. 

The many diverse migrants who have found a home in our Glebe speak of creativity, identity and families, old and new. 

The feminists, young, old and emerging speak volumes of social activism and how these movements connect and ingnite community-led change. 

Every corner of Glebe holds stories of new and old and those ancient stories embedded within the land. 

Join us for a night of community and storytelling. This event will be a special celebration of the diversity within our Glebe. Together we will laugh, cry and feel what it truly means to be connected to a place and to a community. 

The theme of this event is ‘A moment when Glebe changed me..’ 

These stories will be honest, personal and raw, shared in front of a live audience with heart. 

Have a story you’d like to share about Glebe? Register your interest to tell a true to life story, without notes about a time when something happened in Glebe which changed you. Register your interest here.
