A visual storytelling session told through kamishibai story cards and comics. Look out for string games and paper folding tales!


Jackie Kerin (Australia) has a background in theatre, film and television but for the past 15 years has focused on the traditional art of spoken storytelling. She is also the author of several award-winning children’s picture books.

Jackie’s repertoire is broad but she has a particular interest in developing original Australian stories drawn from her colonial and post-colonial heritage. She frequently collaborates with musicians and visual artists and has a passion for creating bold Japanese-style kamishibai stories. She is the current president of Storytelling Australia Victoria and works tirelessly to create opportunities for storytellers to network and grow locally and internationally.
