Where in the World 2019

Every year we strive to take our travellers to new communities from around the globe. This year is no different.  Join us to see Kiribati Dance, West African Drums, discover, and learn to colour with Braille, see puppetry and Indian dance and hear stories in a selection of languages. Here’s a hint as to one: can you work out which country is lit up in the photo below?

We cant wait to experience the multitude of languages and cultures that share our city. Come fly with us on March 30th at Dunedin Public library from 11 am. The simplest trip Around the World you’ll ever take.

Carla and the Romantic Frigate Birds

The Galapagos Islands are an ark of diverse life and in her story Carla wanted to tell us about the many species there that can be found nowhere else and about the beautiful ways these animals court and raise their young.  Frigates who puff up their chests with love, seals, tortoises, marine iguanas, blue footed boobies and more were introduced to the ears and eyes of Carla’s audience. Thank you for sharing them and your story with us.

Halah returns with a tale of Justice.

Stories are a way of passing down values but if you are in the story perhaps you will not know if you are the hero or the villain. Halah’s story posed just this question of a chef who felt he was robbed. In case you are wondering, he got justice, but perhaps not the outcome he thought he deserved.


Thank you for returning to share your story and your language with us again!



Its lucky we had Chung Kwan to tell a story in Cantonese.

CK shared the story Is it Lucky or Unlucky When an Old Man Loses his Horse? And asked her audience to reconsider good and bad luck, a tricky thing to do. We feel it was our good fortune to have the story told.

Thank you for sharing this tale with us.


This story was also interpreted into NZSL, New Zealand Sign Language. See the interpreter framed in answer to the question Is it Lucky or Unlucky? Answer: We don’t know.DSC09814.JPG
