The memory of sitting around a fire, at a table, or in bed listening to a story is one that is shared across many cultures, generations and ages. The shared experience of community through stories is palpable, no matter the type of story. There are stories that teach us life lessons, thrill us, scare us, puzzle us, make us laugh and cry. The stories we carry with us from our childhood shape who we are. The stories we pass on the next generation reveal our hopes, dreams, ethics, beliefs and fears. These stories remind us where we come from, who we love, these stories remind us that We Are Here, We are Resilient, Renewing and Regenerative.
