The Voice in Which it is Told

The Importance of the Human Voice in Life Stories, Oral Social History and Folktales


An online course with storyteller and presenter, Iris Curteis PhD

This five session course explores the importance of the human voice in life stories, oral social histories, tales of resistance, survival and reconciliation. 

What is it about?

Our ability to tell our story in our own voice is central to our autonomy.

In the transmission of intergenerational knowledge the teller’s voice is as vital to our understanding as the memories and experiences being shared. Knowing & telling ‘stories of place’ builds belonging, appreciation of & respect for environments and landscapes. These stories confirm ‘customs of place’, celebrations and share collective wisdom held within our communities.

Who is it for?

This course is of particular importance and highly beneficial to educators working in upper-middle to high school, those working professionally in Youth- and Social work, Community, Health, Death- & Aged Care, Rehabilitation, Correctional Services, and Cultural-Social Arts.

When is it? 

3pm-5pm AEST fortnightly on Saturdays from 8 October – 26 November

How much does it cost?

$500  or $400 Early bird (until 31 August 2022)
