Our family Auslan storytelling workshop is for kids and parents wanting to tell more visual bedtime stories! Telling stories is an important part of Deaf Culture; it is how we pass on information and share experiences. Unlike English speakers, our stories cannot be written down. Your child will work with experienced storytellers from our very own Deaf Community, and will develop characters and storylines in Auslan, in a fun, caring, collaborative environment. Parental involvement is always encouraged!

Auslan Consultancy and MPavilion 2019 are collaborating to provide workshops for the community of Melbourne in Auslan. Auslan Consultancy’s mission is to create more awareness of Deaf language and culture through promoting social inclusion and equal access to information.

Bookings required.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
