The Wilding is a tale of magic realism arising through International Women’s Day, which empowers us to stand together and enact “no more” in the context of violence against women, and violence against our planet.
From it has sprung The Wilding Stories – an audio storytelling project, designed to reach people in all stages of life, across the globe; told and retold by powerful women’s voices in powerful ways. The Wilding Stories opens a safe story space for listening and response, to engage many in this vital conversation.
Appearing at numerous WA arts festivals in 2021-22 as audio installation / Listening Lounge & workshops, the aim is to empower survivors, sisters, women’s allies, creatives and influential advocates.
Women are raising their voices across the globe, joining hands in solidarity through the intuitive and healing power of story and song.
Calling for an end to suppression and bringing women to the centre of their own storying, new narratives are rising everywhere, uncovering and reimagining aspects of the feminine long held underground.
Leaping from these depths, female characters hardwired with intuition, innate courage and unbreakable determination are leading us through change.
Experience the Wilding Stories Listening Lounge in a group, followed by a session of collective reflection and/or expression, exploring the power of many women’s voices and channelling your own creative voice in response.
Please feel welcome to share The Wilding Stories, in any or all its versions, to those with whom it may resonate.
My huge thanks to those who have come on board to create The Wilding Stories thus far and we welcome you to join and include us to retell, interpret and/or give feedback.
“We are women, we are willing, we are one…”

Acknowledging the Wadandi people, on whose country I live and work, in respect for their ancestors past, and the present and future traditional custodians of this place. In constant awe of their age-old custodial practices and intrinsic respect of kin and country, about which I am daily learning; here in Wooditjup and throughout their unceded ancient lands.
Always was, always will be…
