Scribblers Festival 2020

An initiative of FORM: Building a State of Creativity

Scribblers Festival is a literature and arts festival for young people.

The third annual Scribblers Festival is excited to welcome 26 international, national, and local creative minds to Perth - including authors, illustrators, scientists, and musicians.

From 6-8 May 2020, the line up will put creativity back in the classroom as part of Scribblers’ Schools Program and from 9-10 May 2020, the whole family can hop on the inspiration train for a FREE Family Weekend, featuring artist talks, hands-on activities, and special workshops.

Scribblers Festival invites young people and the young at heart to celebrate the magic of storytelling.

Schools Program - 6-8 May 2020
At Scribblers Festival’s 2020 Schools Program, students will get to know some of Australia’s and the world’s best children’s writers including the inimitable Andy Griffiths, Macca the Alpaca creator Matt Cosgrove, Australian treasure Ursula Dubosarsky, iconic designer Beci Orpin, international fantasy star Leigh Bardugo, American graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier, and many, many more!
The program tackles everything from the history of the world to the next big Netflix adaptation, and from how to save the planet to finding the courage to face your fears. There will be illustrator battles, drawing demonstrations, songwriting, and slam poetry.
