A new creative space for the children of Western Sydney

A new creative writing hub in Parramatta has recently opened for children around Western Sydney. The new centre was officially opened by Mr Jihad Dib, Shadow Education Minister. Story Factory provides an opportunity for children to author their own novels, write poetry with the guidance of storytellers, tutors and volunteers. The workshop space is aimed towards marginalised youths and their goal is to continue this through schools and at their Redfern Centre.
