100 Story Building has a new address in Melbourne’s west

A new home in Melbourne's west for a creative writing centre for the young.

After two years of planning and dreaming, 100 Story Building (100SB) has moved into new premises.

The new permanent hub, located in Footscray, Victoria, was co-designed with the organisation’s
“Futuremakers”, a committee comprising young people aged between nine and 14 years.

As the first and only non-profit creative writing centre for the young in Victoria, 100SB has been host to over 50,000 participants and thousands of teachers over the past 11 years through its free and low-cost programs. Its mission statement is ‘to provide opportunities for the most marginalised children and young people in our community to build the literacy skills, confidence and sense of belonging that are fundamental to future success’.
