Schools Program

In partnership with the City of Armadale, the Centre for Stories has launched its first ever schools’ program. Aimed at students in years 7-12, this program uses storytelling to develop creativity and build confidence. Students will have the choice between participating in workshops focussing on either oral or written storytelling. This process recognises and gives voice to students, supporting them to understand that what they have to say is of value to the broader community.

Workshop activities are designed to support students to:
·     Learn the basic fundamentals of storytelling
·     Develop their voice in a safe environment
·     Connect with other young people in a creative and collaborative way

At the conclusion of the workshops, students will have the opportunity to share their stories in audio or written format online via the Centre for Stories and the City of Armadale. Writing workshops will be delivered by award-winning, published West Australian writers Annabel Smith and Holden Sheppard. Oral storytelling workshops will be delivered by acclaimed performance poet, theatre producer and actor Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa.
