Storytelling on the Road

Working with remote and regional primary and secondary schools in the Kimberley, Pilbara, Mid West, Goldfields, South West, and Great Southern, as well as several authors and illustrators, to deliver creative experiences with strong literacy and visual literacy outcomes.

Storytelling on the Road is an initiative by The Literature Centre, thanks to the funding of the DLGSCI’s Creative Learning Partnerships Program. The project is led by Creative Learning Associate and First Nations teacher and writer Casey Mulder. Learn more about Casey below.

About the program

Storytelling on the Road seeks to deliver creative experiences to students in WA's rural and remote communities, providing them with artistic opportunities and chances to connect with published authors and illustrators that they might not have otherwise experienced. We understand that the needs of each school is different, so every workshop that hits the road is different and tailored to your school to achieve the best possible outcomes.


We'll be back in 2024...


16 October - 3 November: East Kimberley with Carl Merrison and Hakea Hustler (Halls Creek District High School, Warlawurru Catholic School, Purnululu School, Dawul Remote Community School, Wyndham District High School, Jundranung Remote Community School)

4 - 8 September: Broome Senior High School with Kate McCaffrey

14 - 16 August: Harvey Senior High School with Alexander Thorpe

16 June: Djidi Djidi Aboriginal School with Sabrina Dudgeon-Swift

7 - 8 June: Kalbarri District High School with Kelly Canby

For many students, storytelling - whether with words or images - is their happy space. The impact of hearing and learning from a writer or illustrator can be profound, and so is time spent being creative and seeing that creativity is something valued.
