Get out of the cold and join us on 1st August for the first ever global mega gig series. All 40 chapters around the globe in action, over the same two-week period. That's a lot of do gooding and in Sydney you'll be helping the awesome not for profit Our Stories.

Been 'n' gone

This gig's over but check out the calendar for the next one.

Our Stories is run by the wonderful Blake and Emma here's the background.

"Our Stories is a Not for Profit organisation delivering engaging 8-week autobiography courses for seniors. The concept of retelling autobiographical events is commonly used in reminiscence therapy. Many studies have found that reminiscence increases wellbeing, and possibly also memory for everyday events.

Over an 8 week period, participants answer a variety of questions and shape their life stories into a memory book. The process is rewarding and the product a keepsake for generations to come.

Our Stories is currently founded by the AMP Tomorrow Makers Awards and was awarded with the 2015 Community Program of the Year at the Australia Day awards with Parramatta City Council".

As usual, it will be a fun filled day of collaborating, do gooding and a good dose of merry making. We have more details to follow on another project in the pipes but please sign up to the event on this page and spread the word about the bird.
