On the Road: The Chin Wagon

Mobile Story Studio

Since 2010, Barefaced Stories has been collecting true stories for the stage, building a unique picture of Australian lives today. Now we are adding some of the most intimate conversations between friends and relatives to that oral library.

This year we custom-built a traveling recording studio — The Chin Wagon —and next year we hit the road launching our first cross-country tour to capture the nation in conversation.

As part of The Story Exchange project, our bespoke story studio will be visiting cities and towns across Australia recording the stories of the people who live there. And we want to hear your stories.

On the road, we will be looking for participants to bring a loved one (or friend) into The Chin Wagon to have the conversation of a lifetime.

For tour dates and information on how you can get involved in 2020, follow us the socials or sign up for our newsletter now.  We are off on the road very soon.  Toot toot!
