"Storytelling is central to the well-being, the confidence and sustainability of communities.  It allows communities to generate and sustain a sense of belonging and cohesion and purpose even through periods of tumultuous change--especially through periods of tumultuous change.  It allows them to constantly define who they are and who they want to be." K. Longley, 2002, Stories for Sustainability, Sustainability Forum, Perth
