100 Story Buildng and Ethiopian New Year September 2015
100 Story Building is about providing opportunities for marginalised young people to develop literacy skills, confidence and a sense of belonging but its also a lot of fun mucking with stories written, drawn, acted, told ... whatever takes your fancy!
Living a short bike ride away from Footscray, where they are located, I'm able to volunteer at times and its good to know that my odd bag of
skills are useful.
A festival tragic, when asked to do a shift during the Ethiopian New Year Festival, of course I jumped.
Simon Conlon and I set up a table in the Mall with pencils and paper and the children were invited to draw comics and try and cover one of the windows. While I looked after the comic factory, Simon had all kinds of magical things happening inside including shadow puppets.
A slow start but in the end I had a table full of of
story makers. Every now and then I was able to zip away and snap some photos of the events on stage.
I love living west of the Yarra in the thick of a multicultural community.
