Make magic for NZ kids through Storylines Family Days
As you know, the Storylines Festival Family Days are magical days where writers, illustrators and storytellers come together to meet children and their families and share the ins, outs and upside-downs of New Zealand stories.
We have just launched a crowdfunding campaign for the Storylines Festival Family Days on the Arts Foundations Boosted website and we invite you to join the ride. Just click on the link, watch our video and be part of the magic by donating to our project.
Since the idea was first born at Joy Cowley’s place in Marlborough way back when (in the early nineties!) more than 100,000 children and their folk have got stuck in to the annual feast of Family Day activities, be it listening wide-eared as a real-life writer reads to them, watching an illustrator conjure a new character in real time, trying their hand at a drawing or writing competition, or dressing up as a favourite book character and performing their own version of a tall Kiwi tale.
It’s up to you: you can donate anonymously or be named, and all amounts are confidential. Resident New Zealand donor can claim 33% of their donation as a tax credit. If we don’t reach our target, all donations go back to the donors.
Thanking you HUGELY in advance!
