Connection. It’s a powerful thing.

Connection. It’s a powerful thing.

Our workshops help kids to re-engage with their education, find their voice and grow in confidence and literacy.

Our workshops are possible because of support from people like you. Without funding we cannot run our workshops, cannot ask for kids’ stories, cannot stay connected to these wonderfully creative young people.

In 2021 our students need connection and imagination more than ever before.

How You Can Help

How You Can Help

At Story Factory we run creative writing and storytelling workshops for young people aged 7 to 17. Our focus is young people who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, have English as an additional language or dialect, or are from under-resourced communities.

Under the guidance of our expert storytellers, and with the support of volunteer writing tutors, young people are empowered to create original stories of all kinds. They leave with the skills and confidence essential for future success.

Every gift counts, and every bit of support goes directly to spreading the life-changing power of storytelling. Stories can change lives.

The effects of COVID-19 on learning

The effects of COVID-19 on learning

Your support is more important than ever.

Young people in our most under-resourced communities are facing the greatest hardships in the COVID-19 calamity. Their education outcomes are the most compromised by disrupted schooling, and the impact on their future could be catastrophic.

We’re committed to being there to help them recover lost ground, rebuild their literacy and motivation to learn, and boost their confidence, and ensure they have the best chance of success, in an uncertain future.

To make that happen, we urgently need your help.

Stories change lives.

Stories matter. We work with young people to write their own stories, imagine their own worlds and to see themselves as authors – with a voice worth sharing with the world. The benefits can last a life time.
