The Story Box - NAIDOC Week Opening Day

To celebrate NAIDOC Week 2013, Anthropos Australis held the Story Box Stall at the NAIDOC Opening Day in Wellington Square, Perth, one of only two interactive, cultural stalls at the event.

The Story Box Stall allowed family and friends to come and share stories with each other, which Tiwa Olowoyo and Andrew Dowding from Anthropos recorded and gave back to them on CD. These stories were then played on RTR FM's Morning Magazine throughout NAIDOC Week.

The day was a great success and we would like to thank the eight groups of family and friends who came in and shared their stories with us, and to RTR FM for their assistance.
