A NIGHT of inspirational women's stories from around the world is being held at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery on May 1.

The Manhattan Project's Stories from the Other Side is sure to be a compelling night and of interest to a wide cross section of our community.

"All the women story tellers now reside in Coffs Harbour but they have come from far and wide and from very different backgrounds," said Fiona Foulkes, The Manhattan Project Coordinator.

"The stories are moving, heart breaking but inspirational. There will be women sharing stories from Sudan, Bosnia, Burundi and Coffs Harbour about experiences that challenged them right to the core, but how they have learnt from these and made them the successful woman that they are today."

Stories from the Other Side is on Wednesday May 1. Tickets are $25 and includes nibbles, drinks and music from Avison Quartet. Doors open at 5.30pm with the story telling to start at 6pm.

The event will be raising money for two charities; Sanctuary Australia Foundation, a Coffs Harbour charity that provides visa sponsorship and direct assistance to refugees in camps overseas, including school fees and medical aid for orphans of war and also FACAPEV, a charity based in Burundi who provide education programs, seed money for growing crops and food for the most vulnerable in society, including war widows and orphans.
