Spend some time with Dave Lowe, award-winning author of the My Hamster is a Genius and Stinky and Jinks series, to learn how to make your stories powerful and entertaining. By the end of this workshop you’ll have the tools to hook your readers with clever cliff-hangers, snappy dialogue and injections of humour.

Presented in collaboration with Queensland Writers Centre.



Summer Festival

Join us for a summer of fun at our annual Summer Festival, 14 Dec - 25 Jan! With activities for children of all ages, there will be something new and exciting for your family to explore.

Bring children under 5 and explore our Jarjum Stories exhibition or dance and sing at a free First 5 Forever session.

Children 8-14 can engineer a robot racer using Lego, challenge themselves with a treasure hunt and join a game of comic book scrabble.

Teens can spark their imagination and meet new people with dedicated Dungeons and Dragons workshops, fabric printing, exploring new worlds in a VR (virtual reality) environment. Plus, teens can design their own spaces and objects, using creative and technology equipment at The Edge, including sewing machines and the laser cutter.
