Bread & Butter: How to be Stubborn- SOLD OUT

  • Centre for Stories 100 Aberdeen Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with 40 guests in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. This month's storyteller: Esther Onek. 

Esther was born in South Sudan and is from the Acholi tribe. Due to South Sudan’s instability her family fled to Kakuma Refugee camp where they lived for seven years. Esther arrived in Australia at the age of ten, unable to speak any English. She went on to obtain a Bachelor of Social Work and now works for Women’s Health and Family Services. She was a speaker at TEDxPerth late last year. At Bread & Butter, Esther will be sharing something important with us: a guide to being stubborn.
