Centre for Young Writers
100 Story Building is a centre for young writers based in Melbourne’s inner-west. Here, children and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse and marginalised backgrounds are given the opportunity to foster their creative voice and to have their ideas shared and respected. We bring together young writers and members of Melbourne’s creative community, and encourage them to share in their skills and understandings through creative storytelling excursions, publishing programs and after-school activities.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for the most marginalised children and young people in our community to build the literacy skills, confidence and sense of belonging that are fundamental to future success.
Many of our programs are free, but to support our work with children and young people, we operate as a social enterprise. If you are looking for creative workshops to engage children and young people, then please talk to us about our major project service. We work with schools, councils, festivals and services to co-create programs that support outcomes for children and young people through direct programming, teacher development or strategic consultations.
100 Story Building is proud to be part of Arts West, a unique alliance of arts organisations who reflect the exciting, vibrant and diverse arts and culture thriving in Melbourne’s inner west.
