Kids’ Weekend | Adelaide Writers’ Week 2017 | 4 – 5 Mar 2017


Kids’ Weekend | Adelaide Writers’ Week 2017

The magic is back with the Adelaide Writers’ Week Kids’ Weekend – two days of stories, songs, parades and some pretty amazing creatures.

Come along and spend some time with singer/songwriter Holly Throsby, local theatre company Story Trove, Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo and the ever wonderful Nest Studios. There will be murals, books about bums, creatures and rather a lot of stardust.

Get ready for two magical days of stories, parades, painting, printing, performances and lots of full on fun!

The Story Tent

This year the big red yurt will see some spectacular storytelling including The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade, The Nose Pixies, The Very Hungry Bum as well as Wild Ideas and each is in its own way secretly educational.

Nest Studio

Under new blue sails, Nest Studio will be publishing books and making posters and paintings. Drop by for a story or maybe a game and while you are there please help make the official Writers’ Week bookmarks.

Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo

This year we will welcome a great green turtle and a softly spiky echidna from Evelyn Roth’s Nylon Zoo. Come along, grab a costume and parade your way around the garden.

You Are Stardust Mural

This year writer Elin Kelsey and illustrator Soyeon Kim invite you to work with them to create a giant mural based on their book You Are Stardust. With the help of some paper and string you’ll discover that we are all a part of the cosmos.
