Level 24 Perilous Quest

Monday, 2 July

Some days, a mere 100 Story Building is just not enough for a bunch of creative heroes. That’s when we like to go on a quest – a journey fraught with obstacles and, sometimes, a little bit of danger. Don’t worry though, we allow all heroes to embark on their quests with a Hero’s Backpack, filled with objects that may prove useful in a tricky spot. In this workshop, you will create a map of a strange land, profile your hero and their nemesis, fill your hero’s Backpack, then set off on an adventure story!


Level 57 Time Travelling Suitcase

Wednesday, 4 July

Did you know we own Footscray’s finest (and only) time machine? Last week the machine began to make strange popping and fizzing noises. We consulted the dog-eared manual but it was no help. Then suddenly the doors flew open and behold! There sat a strange suitcase bursting at the edges and jiggling. The suitcase and its contents were … ALIVE. What stories do they have to tell us? Where (and when) have they been? Are they friend or foe? Make a comic zine and discover what obstacles, dangers and delights this suitcase encountered on its travels.


Level 88 Spacecraft

Thursday, 5 July

Calling intrepid space rangers! The ‘100SB Intergalactic Space Federation’ has bought a whole new galaxy and we need you to explore the planets in it. Your mission: discover your own planet, name it and create a diorama of all the strange, wonderful, mysterious flora and fauna that inhabit it.

Just be careful, terrible things could happen there! Return to Planet Earth with your diorama, drawings and tales of amazing rescues.


Level 38 SIA

Friday, 6 July

Trouble is brewing in 100 Story Building. Pigeons are conspiring against humans and hamsters are plotting to steal the plans to a secret invention! In this workshop, you will head out to the Level 38 Secret Intelligence Agency assigned with the mission to infiltrate the animal kingdom. Armed with a secret identity including a new name, disguise, photo ID and passport, you will have to neutralise the nefarious plots and write an official report to your spy chief of your findings!


Level 63 Podscapade

Monday, 9 July

This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take a ride in our glass (quartz, dodecahedron, smokey bbq) elevator up and down the levels of 100 Story Building. In this workshop you will select a level, illustrate a panoramic view of the stories you find there, script a radio play using a simple story structure (fun fact: Pixar movies often follow this!) and then collaborate with fellow podcasters to record your very own play.


Level 45 Comic Boom: SUPERHEROES (New)

Tuesday, 10 July

It all has to start somewhere. How does a mild-mannered, friendly neighbourhood person become the superhero that saves the world from mayhem? Where are they from, who do they care about, what powers they have and what flaws do they carry? In this workshop, you will discover the answers for yourself then create a comic where they meet the one person every superhero needs – their Arch Nemesis!
