Saturday Club

Saturday August 20, 10am – 12 noon

The Storyopolis Saturday Club’s aim is to amplify young people’s voices, through multiple genres: Prose, Poetry, Scriptwriting, Drama, Comics, Storyboards, Illustration.

The club will provide a safe and encouraging space for young people to develop this creative voice.

The weekly sessions under the Storyopolis umbrella will link up with existing regular events – i.e., dance classes, the theatre group held at Volcano Theatre.

There will be dedicated writing and creative mentors to develop ideas, narrative, plotting and storytelling techniques.

We are having a two-hour taster session on the Saturday 20th August, to get a feel of what the young people want. At this session – Author and Illustrator Tom Docherty will lead the two hour session with a show-and-tell of his work and activity for the young people to engage with.

We will then start the regular Saturday Club from the 10th September every Saturday up to Christmas, then from the being of January to Easter.

We hope to create a space where young people can come and develop story ideas, write and draw and if they want, just read!

We will also be providing a small library space with books that reflex the Saturday Club’s aims – Developing a Creative Voice.

Each week we will be introducing them to Writers, Illustrator, Animators, Musicians and Poets – through show-and-tells, activities and book readings.
