Sydney Story Factory
The Sydney Story Factory is now open! Over 50 companies donated their goods or expertise to create The Martian Embassy at 176 Redfern Street, Redfern. All teachers are invited to bring a class of students in for a two-hour book-making workshop.
Inspired by 826 Valencia, a writing centre for children in San Francisco founded by novelist Dave Eggers and educator Ninive Caligari, the Sydney Story Factory is dedicated to developing creativity in our children. Whilst programs are open to all, they are targeted at disadvantaged children, especially those from indigenous and non-English speaking backgrounds.
There is growing global awareness that the ability to think creatively and flexibly is key to preparing children for a future we cannot yet imagine. All programs at the Sydney Story Factory are designed to nurture the creativity that is innate to every child. Programs will increase children's abilities to express their thoughts and feelings, and give them new ways of understanding the world around them.
