If you're coming to our Independent Publishing Fair (and you should), take a minute to plonk your kids on a cushion and lend us their ears: some of our finest children's authors and storytellers will tell us tales to make you laugh, cry and scratch your head. Featured storytellers include Irma Gold, author of Megumi and the Bear, and Simon Mitchell, author of Louie the Pirate Chef.
Are you or your little one a zinester at heart? This drop-in workshop, run during our massive Independent Publishing Fair at Gorman Arts Centre, allows kids of all ages to get messy, sticky and creative as they make their very own zine to take home.
Got an idea for a great beginning, middle or end of a story? Come and join our interactive story wall. Write or illustrate a beginning, add an ending to someone else’s middle and visit the story wall throughout the day to watch it grow. This event will be held throughout our massive Independent Publishing Fair at Gorman Arts Centre – there'll be something for everyone.
What’s your favourite word? Fantabulous? Ridonculous? Hullabaloo? Find the most creative way you possibly can to show us. Spell it out with tomato sauce, pencils or buttons – have your class make the word with desks and chairs – and we will feature it on the Noted Festival website.
Please send content to: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Whooziwotsit" in the subject line. Remember to tell us your name and how old you are so we can credit you on the website! Please send files as: JPEG, PNG, GIF or TIFF. Submissions close 20 March 2016.
Heroes is a collaborative project undertaken by students in the Koori Kids Group, the Koori Leadership Program and Noted Festival. Over the course of two weeks, students will write and make zines around the theme of "heroes". Koori Kids and Koori Leadership are groups for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged eight to sixteen. They are facilitated by West Belconnen Child and Family Centre, UnitingCare Kippax, and Belconnen Community Services. From local Elders to sporting stars to superheroes, these zines, available to read on the Noted website, will tell the stories of the people that inspire them.
