At Story Factory, we know that stories have the power to change lives. Research shows that quality arts-based learning significantly improves social and emotional wellbeing. Story Factory programs help young people most at risk of losing confidence in their writing and switching off at school.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of marginalised young people through creative writing and storytelling. In our workshops they develop the skills and confidence to find their voice and shape their future.
Since opening in 2012 we have taken more than 17,500 enrolments, all young people aged 7-17.
Students seen per week
Each week our fantastic storytellers, with the help of wonderful volunteers, give over 800 students a little more confidence to find their voice.
Creative Writing Centres
We work from two amazing creative writing hubs in Redfern and Parramatta. Delivering programs right across Sydney from Auburn to Airds, Matraville to Mount Pritchard.
