StoryArts Festival 2017

Story Arts Festival

The StoryArts Festival Ipswich began in 1995 as the Ipswich Festival of Children’s Literature and has been held every two years since then. The festival offers FREE sessions for children and in 2019 low cost sessions for adults will be managed by Book Links Qld Inc, 19-20 October, 2019.

In 2019 we set up a separate new website just for the festival. Here you will find all the information about the program and presenters for 2019.

The festival aims to increase an awareness of the value of the arts in relation to writing and illustration and help build and maintain increased audiences for children’s literature. We plan to inspire young people to buy and read more books and gain an appreciation of the processes involved in writing and illustrating. We also aim to enthuse teachers and parents about the value of stories and encourage them to promote literature to young people.
The Ipswich Festival is organized and funded mainly by the Ipswich District Teacher-Librarian Network.

The dates for 2021 are 9 - 13 August.
