An initiative set to uncover the untold stories of Corangamite.

This year the story collection day will be held on Wednesday 5 September in Cobden from 10 am - 2 pm with a BBQ lunch provided for all storytellers.

The project commenced in 2017 when Council coordinated the We Know Your Name But Not Your Story initiative, in partnership with local health services, Corangamite Shire Youth Council and Humankind Enterprises. 

Council is again running this exciting project to build resilience in local young people which was born from a survey conducted in Corangamite Shire in May 2016 which showed that one quarter of the 335 young people surveyed felt dissatisfied with their connection to their community.
 

The theme of ‘community connection’ was explored with the Youth Council and key leaders in the local community who designed the project which used story telling as a vehicle for increasing community connectedness.
