Event description

Description

Have you got a story to tell that will engage and connect travellers with the rich history of western Tasmania?

The Western Wilds is a journey of discovery through the powerful wilderness stories of western Tasmania that will compel travellers to take more time, slow down and explore further on their journey.

Story Stops are select sites along the way that engage travellers in the wilderness story. Story Stops will create greater value in the drive experience – connecting travellers with the real wilderness story of Western Tasmania, sparking increased connection with place and social sharing on journey.

The success of the Western Wilds will be elevated by the level to which the local industry and community engage in its activation…the more interesting stories people can discover and share with others, the more travellers will come and the longer they will stay in the West. Your particular story may be related to people or places that are specific to your location. Add a story to your restaurant menu, room compendiums, through your tour commentary and interpretation materials, you may want to even deliver your story through some form of interpretative installation.

This first workshop is about assisting you to identify and craft your own Western Wilds stories. Learn about what makes a good story and how best to deliver it in a way that makes it compelling, relevant and creates connections for the traveller. Hear a bit about what other stories may become a story stop and identify opportunities for collaboration.
