The City of Sydney are celebrating 20 years of the Glebe Library with a series of four storytelling workshops focussed on digital media and storytelling techniques. The project you produce has the chance to appear on the City’s Sydney Oral Histories website!
Each 1.5-hour class follows the same format, so you can come to just 1 or attend all 4 to finish your project. Choose from the option to:
- Create and build on your own digital stories over the 4 sessions
- Build upon a story someone else has begun
- Contribute original content by recording your own stories
Speakers include City Historian and History Council of NSW Councillor, Dr Lisa Murray, as well as Educator and workshop facilitator, Elias Nohra.
When: Fortnightly on Wednesdays, 5.30pm to 7pm
Wednesday 12 July to Wednesday 16 August 2017
Where: Glebe Library, 186 Glebe Point Road, Glebe NSW 2037
Cost: Free, bookings essential

I am interested in finding photos of my house. The residents before we purchased our property over 50 years ago removed all the original features. We are part of a set of three houses. I am particularly interested in the wrought iron fencing that was removed as I would love to restore the facade to it’s original design.
Can you help with any information, photos would be marvellous!
Hi Paula, the History Council doesn’t hold any archives, but I suggest that you approach the City of Sydney Archives via their website if you are in Glebe or the City of Sydney local government area. The State Library of NSW may also be a good source.
