SPUN: True Stories Told in the Territory

It's a simple formula – a stage, six people and their stories – but with nine sold out shows in a row, SPUN continues to prove the humble yarn is a powerful thing indeed. Get in on the magic and join them at the Northern Territory Library for a night inspired by the theme uncovered.

The Territory is full of incredible storytellers, as Creative Producer Johanna Bell knows, and the first SPUN for 2017 is no exception. You’ll travel back in time, dip inside the browning pages of a forgotten photo album and peek between the sheets as locals reveal their histories, their hearts and a couple of well-kept secrets. 

Bell says the theme ‘uncovered’ is perfect for a night at the library.

“SPUN is all about uncovering stories and the NT Library is the keeper of Territory stories. They document, share and grow history and we feel like through SPUN, we’re taking part in that history making process as well.”

After two highly successful years the SPUN team is taking their story telling mission to the next level with more community partnerships and their very own podcast, SPUN stories. 

“SPUN exists to connect strangers and strengthen community, ” Bell said, “so we’re looking at how we can help other organisations actualise their storytelling missions."
