Children's Festival of Moving Stories 2016
Childrens festival of Moving Stories

Held over November and December, the 2016 program featured free events for primary and secondary schools across Greater Western Sydney and regional New South Wales.

We were thrilled to announce the return of Russ the Story Bus, who travelled 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 were 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 hoped 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.
