Event Details

Festival of Jewish Arts and Music reveals line-up for their third storytelling slam night, Spun Stories - Is This My Story To Tell?

Melbourne’s FOJAM (Festival of Jewish Arts and Music) is excited to announce another edition of their popular storytelling and slam poetry night with the upcoming event Spun Stories - Is This My Story To Tell? On Wednesday 11 August, six artists, storytellers, thinkers and performers will tap into the subject matter of ‘Death of The Author’ and dissect ongoing questions around authorship and cultural appropriation. Who has the ‘right’ to tell which story? Are we only able to tell stories that we have experienced ourselves? Is it ok to try and embody another character and tell their story as an act of empathy and compassion? Can we separate the character of a person from the work they create?

This year’s lineup includes writer, journalist, broadcaster and descendent of Holocaust survivors, Ramona Koval; nonfiction writer, poet, artist and high school teacher, Alice Chipkin; proud Birpai-Thungutti man, writer, journalist and senior editor for News Online at NITV, Jack Latimore; celebrated producer, artist, multi-instrumentalist and sometimes rapper, Joelistics; and multi-award winning Zimbabwean writer and performance poet, Thabani Tshuma.
