Our Upcoming Fundraiser, Looking for Baristas and our Alpha Workshop with The Mabin School

As many of you know, we are revamping the Intergalactic Travel Authority to make it as cool as it can be. We want to make our space a truly galactic destination that’ll draw travellers from all over the universe and inspire them to tell their friends about it, too.

We’re are currently meeting with art designers and set decorators to fine-tune the look and feel of the space and planning a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the changes. We have some awesome people helping (thank you if you are one of them!) and, if you’d like to lend a hand, here are the areas we could use some help with:

  • Visual space and an immersive environment including use of video and audio
  • Retail business and sales
  • Coffee shop business and sales
  • Events and space rentals
  • Communications

Thank you to everyone who’s been so helpful so far in this process!

Looking for Baristas to Work in Our Coffee Shop

We’re looking for people who’d like to volunteer as baristas at the Intergalactic Travel Authority. You’ll have fun, get to see how Story Planet works and learn a new life skill!

Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience. We’ll train you! Email Liz (liz@storyplanet.ca) with “Barista” in the subject line for more details.

Our Alpha Workshop with The Mabin School

Last Friday, the grade 4 class from The Mabin Scool came by for an Alpha Workshop. At first, they were totally opposed to writing about romance… but then they ended up writing a beautiful love story about an elephant and a ladybug!
