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.

“The drinking culture here in Australia plays a big part in a variety of issues for sure. Alcohol is everywhere and is encouraged constantly. I’m not anti-alcohol at all, I enjoy a social drink or two but it’s the difference between partaking, celebrating or nearly killing yourself or others by misadventure. Some people simply cannot handle alcohol and it ends up in some kind of tragedy or disaster. It happens and we see it.”The Professor Gordian Fulde Interview.

The Claudia Karvan Interview and Photo Shoot
“I’ve been involved with the Wayside Chapel since 2006. I got involved because of Graham Long the CEO of Wayside. His patient, non-judgmental philosophies are life-affirming and create a lot of joy and opportunity for people at their lowest ebb. His Christmas Day where Wayside closes off the street and feed over 1000 people is what Christmas Day is all about”
