Stuff we talked about in this episode:

The public conversation was called 'Shaping a new narrative for the region: a conversation with Aaron Foley'. The event was held at The VRI in Traralgon on 18 June 2018, by Gippslandia and Creative Victoria.

Aaron Foley is the Chief Storyteller for the City of Detroit (USA), a city that is on a mission to reinvent itself - kinda like Gippsland, yeah?

The conversation also featured a group of Gippslandians, including Laura Poole (ABC Gippsland), John Calabro (Gippslandia Publisher), Aunty Doris Paton (Aboriginal elder), and Marc-O-Matic, (Gippsland artist, Augmented/Virtual Reality Storyteller and Creative Technologist).

Of course, Gippsland has its own scattered tribe of emerging storytellers. Among them are Gippslandia, Faces of Gippsland, the Baw Baw Citizen, Bruce Pascoe, and of course, The Gloaming.

Visual storytellers are also popping up, including Peter Yacono and Anissha Vijayan who recently made feature length documentary about the Latrobe Valley called Our Power, as well as some folk from Barefoot Pathways Transitional Training Centre who are working on an eight-part documentary on employment in the Latrobe Valley.
