Celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Storytelling
At Story Factory we’re so proud to work with many Indigenous young people, in fact in 2019-20 17% of our students were Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
A part of celebrating Indigenous stories is ensuring at an organisational level we are honouring the contribution of our First Nations students and staff. We have committed to a reinvigorated and meaningful Reconciliation Action Plan to ensure Story Factory is a culturally strong and safe place, across all aspects of our organisation.
We are thrilled to be hiring an Aboriginal Liaison Officer to assist with this important work, and to support our Aboriginal students, families and communities. If you’re interested in hearing more please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of our fabulous Indigenous students’ writing has been brought wonderfully to life below by our storyteller Russ, a proud Ngarrindjeri man. Have a listen!
Wayne – The Devil and Me
Sky – T. Rex the Mountain Jumper
Brooklyn – My Story
We’re very proud to listen and learn from the voices and stories of First Nations People – who are part of the oldest living cultures on the planet.
Australia has the world’s oldest oral stories. The First Peoples of our country are still sharing those stories today, and we’re proud to support Indigenous young people to be part of that storytelling tradition.
