The Catherine Keenan Story

“We are not a therapeutic environment, we are a creative one, we see children with all kinds of issues blossom through tapping into their imagination and expressing themselves through story-telling. Their self-confidence improves greatly and they deepen their engagement with learning”
Australian of the Year Local Hero Award Winner 2016 Dr Catherine Keenan – Co Founder of The Sydney Story Factory. Providing a magical world of possibilities for marginalised, inner city children in Sydney.

Did you ever actually fetch a Chiko Roll for a surfer?
“Yes, sadly I did. Surfie girls were second glass citizens. I’m just glad I sneaked a bite out of it on the way back up the beach”
“On the other hand though, I do so love a man who can shoot from the lip, triple an entendre and give a little punniligus”
