Kate Lawrence is an independent audio producer. She aims to share stories with a storytellers heart, a lawyer’s logic and a lyrical ear; stories that captivate and touch us, stories that question how things are, and offer glimpses of how they might be. She is passionate about story as the quintessentially human tool for reflection, connection, inspiration and change.
Kate is the founder of Story Ground, where she crafts and tells stories in three mediums – oral, audio and written, and offers storytelling workshops and community storytelling programs. She is also the founder of Story Wise Women, a movement of storytellers strengthening women’s voices and belonging.
Coming Home has been proudly supported by the Darebin City Council’s Community Grants Program we thank them for their support and commitment to women and housing.
We are indebted to Kiara, Mary and Neen*, and their willingness and courage to generously share their stories. We know it was not always easy. Thank you all.
