Explore storytelling

Dreaming to DreamWorks is a Museum educator-led program exploring storytelling through DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition — Journey from Sketch to Screen. Students investigate historical practices of storytelling, looking at the literary devices and creative decisions involved.

Through enquiry-based learning, and handling of storytelling tools and objects, students develop a deep understanding of the significance and historical place of contemporary storytelling through animation.

Students will collaboratively draw inspiration from the exhibition to create their own unique tale, combining character, world and story.


  • Introductory activity — students explore objects that relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytelling.
  • Gallery activity — working in groups, students explore DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition and consider storytelling elements of character, world and story.
  • Reflection — students gather to discuss their ideas for creating new stories based on the elements of character, world and story.
