Welcome to The Story Collective...
A home for stories and storytellers in Otautahi-Christchurch, New Zealand, and beyond...
We are creating community through the magic of storytelling. A community that heals, inspires, listens, learns, grows and laughs together. All are welcome. Here’s our space for you to find out about workshops, story circles and other events we are offering. You will also discover resources and ways to connect with others working with story in various ways. Enjoy!
Shonaleigh is back with a sparkling array of story events
The much anticipated return of international storyteller Shonaleigh Cumbers is upon us. Shonaleigh has a generous and full itinerary, including a residential workshop, weekend workshop and evening performance. There is something for everyone – but hurry because places are selling out fast!!
Who is Shonaleigh Cumbers? Find out in this interview with our very own Anne Mortimer, first aired on Plains FM .

What is The Story Collective all about? Listen to our very own Sharon Moreham, as she explains in PechaKucha style.
“It's a human need to be told stories. The more we're governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible."
