Ever wanted to tell stories through film, acting or dance? Join the club.

The Storytellers Club (27th - 29th April, 10am - 3.30pm)

Storytellers is a new and exclusive School Holiday Workshop that we're taking out to the community.

The Storytellers club is a 3-day workshop for young people to tell stories through different forms of expression. Show up with the expectation to experience a little bit of film, acting and dance, and the desire to create in collaboration. You’ll be taught by leading experts and will gain knowledge of what it’s like to be a creative in a diverse industry.
