Good news, space explorers! We now have enough children on our waitlist to offer another full day of programming, but we need your help to make that happen…
Story Planet is a charity that brings artists, writers, and volunteers together to help children nurture their voice and build communication and literacy skills. Our workshops integrate art, digital media and writing to inspire and spark creativity. Every child gets to experience the thrill of creating something original, whether it’s a book, a film, or a digital story!
Our programs are offered free of charge in order to minimize the barriers to participation, but we need donations to make that happen. Please consider donating on our GoFundMe page to help us help more kids. There’s no minimum on the amount you can give. Every little bit helps!
Intro to Latte Art Workshop
Another way to help support Story Planet’s awesome programming is to sign up for our workshops!
Do you want to impress the coffee lovers in your life? Sign up for our Latte Art Workshop! We’ll teach you how to make perfect milk foam, and latte designs such as rosettas and hearts.
Talented latte artists, Soula and Naomi, lead our Latte Art Workshop. The fee for the workshop is $50 (which goes toward our programs like our Lift Off After School program).

Omega Access Screening
Story Planet is hosting a screening and discussion of 3 short films centred around powerful stories of alternate men in the community. The event will be on Tuesday, February 23 at 4:30 p.m.. Here is some information on the group running this initiative:
Omega Access (OA) is one of Movember Canada’s newest Men’s Health Partners. We are a non-profit media group dedicated to the idea that outstanding, real-world men can inspire a new generation to see masculinity as a spectrum and not a binary.
Our goal is to engage our audience in debunking outdated notions of masculinity by celebrating men with healthy lifestyles, alternative identities and productive passion. Please email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
