Children's Festival of Moving Stories

Childrens festival of Moving Stories

Welcome to the 2016 Children’s Festival of Moving Stories.

Held over November and December, this year’s program features free events for primary and secondary schools across Greater Western Sydney and regional New South Wales.

We are thrilled to announce the return of Russ the Story Bus, who is travelling to Western Sydney and beyond, visiting schools in regional New South Wales for the first time this year. Russ has a dazzling new exterior, featuring illustrations by award-winning illustrator and author Shaun Tan. 

We are proud to host a dynamic program of Author Talks and Workshops in November at local libraries across Western Sydney, led by some of Australia’s most exciting creative minds in children’s and young adult literature.

We hope this year’s Children’s Festival of Moving Stories inspires young readers with a program that stirs imaginations and provokes discussion about writing and creativity.
