building confident, creative communities through story

The Story Island Project is a Hobart-based not-for-profit organisation that nurtures the creativity and writing skills of young Tasmanians aged 7–17 and celebrates their diverse voices.


Supported by a team of enthusiastic volunteer tutors, Story Island runs dynamic storytelling workshops where children and teenagers are empowered to create their own stories. The focus of Story Island’s work is on communities that are often overlooked, where people may experience poverty and disadvantage or are marginalised in other ways. 



Our vision is for children and teenagers to harness the power of their imaginations so they can grow to be resilient and creative shapers of their own lives.
