Scribblers festival

Scribblers Festival is an annual festival of literature and arts for young people, brought to life by cultural non-profit FORM with the support of our amazing partners across Western Australia.

We run lots of events for young people and the young at heart, including an amazing Scribblers Family Festival in the Perth CBD, The Golden Pen Writing Competition, the Golden Feather Hunt, and a Scribblers on the Road travelling program that will be visiting the Pilbara and beyond in 2024.

Holiday break

The Scribblers team is winding down for the year after a very busy 2023.
We are already preparing for our 2024 programming though, so sign up to our mailing list below to keep up to date with what's coming next!

Happy Holidays!

What's On

You may have noticed some things about Scribblers are a little bit different this year. We’re excited to have found a new home for Scribblers in the Perth CBD, and will be hosting our fan-favourite Scribblers Family Festival in October this year, rather than September.

We’ve been busy curating a massive amount of events and activities throughout the year, for all creative people, so make sure you check out what’s coming up next in the Scribblers world

What’s happening at Scribblers HQ?

Due to recent COVID-19 regulations in WA, we have made the hard decision to postpone Scribblers Festival. The Schools Program will now be held 24-28 May 2021 at Subiaco Arts Centre and 31 May-1 June at The Regal Theatre. Our Family Weekend will be 29-30 May at Subiaco Arts Centre.

We are working hard to confirm the impacts this has on our programming schedule. We aim to keep the sessions as close to the current program as possible for easy transition to your child's age, though please note that some guest creatives may change due to availability and travel restrictions. We will advise of any programming changes as soon as we are able on our Interactive Program, emails, and social media channels - @scribblersfest on Instagram and Facebook.

Be sure to check out RELICS: Bricks of the New World at The Goods Shed in Claremont, an immersive exhibition by LEGO Masters Series 2 Winners Jackson Harvey and Alex Towler, which is still on display until 30 May 2021. With special offerings for schools, a free activity Workbook for every kid who enters, and some virtual treats available online, it is storytelling that is truly out of this world.

And don't miss the exhibition extension, Subiaco Street RELICS, which will now take place 24 May-20 June 2021 across Subiaco. Download your map here!‍
