Introducing Anne E Stewart
Over thirty years ago these words, inspired children’s librarian Anne E Stewart to embark on her storyteller’s journey. Her aim was to develop a love of language and literature in her young audience. With many years experience since then, Anne has expanded her repertoire and now works with any age group and audience to tell the shared stories of Australia, promote cultural understanding, raise issues of social justice and increasingly, to help others give voice to their own unique stories. Anne knows that everyone loves listening to stories and acknowledges that more than ever, people are using stories to educate, engage and build a sense of community.
With her lengthy commitment to storytelling in Australia, Anne has also gained a reputation overseas as one of Australia’s foremost storytellers. Anne was the first Australian storytellers to be invited to South America by Dream On Productions and has also represented Australia at the Scottish Storytelling Centre’s annual festival while Graham Langley, Director of the Traditional Arts Team in the UK had this to say about her , “Anne is an acclaimed storyteller with an international reputation. Her telling is a unique cultural experience.”
