Family Sundays: Smart Stories

Scroll to content

Everyone has a story to tell, and now is the chance to tell yours.

Hear from the experts with your chance to meet and greet award-winning children's author and illustrator Shaun Tan on the Lightwell stage, and discover your inner monster with our fun and interactive storytelling sessions.

Let your audience decide the ending as you learn to generate your own choose-your-own adventure narrative with Twine, and write and animate your own simple storybook adventure with hand-drawn images and iPads.

Craft your own comic book or graphic novel at the comic creation corner, and play a range of narrative based videogames in our Games Lab.

Shaun Tan will be delivering a brief talk about the craft of writing and illustrating, and then be available for autographs between 11am and 12pm.
