Glebe Stories Festival

Tranby has long-been an important place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples to connect, learn and share in Glebe. The 2022 Glebe Stories Festival is an opportunity to connect our diverse Glebe community and celebrate the rich culture and diversity within our beloved 2037.

Glebe Stories Festival

Since late 2021 Tranby has led community-consultation and support for a weeklong festival that will celebrate the diversity of peoples, cultures and stories of Glebe. From Saturday 15 th until Saturday the 22 nd October, Glebe will transform with many different events, including music, theatre and cultural yarning circle discussions, as a way to break down barriers and ignite conversations between peoples of Glebe.

The festival has a First Nations focus and stories will be shared both at live events and through an interactive self-guided walking tour that will promote Elder’s stories in place. One of these locations will be Tranby which will also feature a semi-permanent street walk exhibition, sharing iconic photos from Tranby’s 65 years history. This Street Walk exhibition will demonstrate the important place Tranby hasbeen for the Aboriginal community, empowering our mob through culturally meaningful education for 65 years, of 65, 000.

The Glebe Stories Festival will be an important event for our local community, not only economically but also by improving community cohesion and enhancing residents social and emotional wellbeing. Sharing Glebe stories is particularly important because of the dynamic diversity that exists within our community, including across cultural, socio-economic and heritage areas.
