SPUN: True Stories Told in the Territory is a live storytelling event showcasing some of the extraordinary people and their stories that make up the Northern Territory. Popping up at different venues around Darwin every three months, SPUN brings people from all walks of life together to share stories under a theme.

True stories told live are incredibly powerful. They have the potential to move, confront and inspire us, reframing the way we see ourselves and others. At a time when we’re bombarded by social media and manufactured narratives, SPUN offers a refreshingly candid snapshot of life in the Territory.

This Festival SPUN event takes you behind the carer’s curtain where a line-up of locals unveils intimate, heroic and hilarious stories from hidden worlds. Teaming up with Carers NT, SPUN brings you six entwined stories about those among us who look after others – children, grannies, parents, siblings and even the next-door neighbour! This collection of incredible humans will have you shaking your head in wonder, admiration and disbelief as they wrap you up in an evening of good old-fashioned storytelling.
