On Tuesday 1st October 1st I helped to two fantastic workshops at the Sydney Story Factory (Martian Embassy) at Redfern.

The first workshop was called ‘Where do Ideas come from?’ led by Emma Mactaggart from Child Writes. I think Emma started the business of Child Writes in Toowoomba. Kids can sign up to a program where they create their own picture book. This sounds like a fabulous idea. Emma is going to send me some information about it.

The second workshop was called ‘What would you do?’ led by 2 girls from ATYP (Aust theatre for young people) The kids re wrote a play called the Compass by becoming the characters and making up their own scripts. Some great ideas. Compass is going to be showing soon at the STC. I’d like to see it.
