Presented by the Powerhouse and TAFE NSW, Creative Studio: Story Factory is a three-day digital and creative skills workshop for high-school students (years 7 – 10) in Western Sydney.   In this workshop, students will explore storytelling from the past and bring it into a digital world. Inspired by the Powerhouse collection, the students will create individual digital publications of their own writing, poetry or short stories which will incorporate graphic design, illustration, photography and videography. Students will have the opportunity to explore and debate the following themes: Aviation vs Space Travel and Nature vs Technology.   This workshop is free, but bookings are essential as places are limited. Students will be required to attend all three days of their workshop of choice. Find out more and register now.
