Sydney Story Factory – Redfern
Founded in 2012, Story Factory is a not-for-profit creative writing centre for marginalised young people aged 7 to 17. At Story Factory, they know that stories have the power to change lives. Research shows that quality arts-based learning significantly improves social and emotional wellbeing. Their storytelling workshops have been designed by creative writing and literacy experts to build literacy, confidence, and creativity: essential skills young people need to shape their future. They only work with young people who are marginalised. To them, that means young people whose voices are not heard as loudly as they should be, due to external circumstances.
