All aboard the Soft Stories train!

Meet art duo Soft Stories, and help launch their enchanting new installation for children, the Storyline Express!  

Be the first to enjoy the Storyline Express: a miniature locomotive carrying friendly and furry passengers through a city full of stories crafted by our youngest visitors.   

During a special launch event on Saturday, 3 December, children will get to know Soft Stories (Isobel Knowles and Cat Rabbit) and peek inside their wonderful world of felt creatures, stop-motion movies, and dream-like installations.  

After Soft Stories’ presentation, children will get to build the cityscape surrounding the train alongside Cat and Isobel.  

The launch event is suitable for ages 4 – 8 years.  

This installation is suitable for toddlers – 8 years and will be in the Pauline Gandel Children’s Quarter throughout the summer school holidays, with self-directed activities available to families.  


  • 11am- 12.30pm 
  • 2pm- 3.30pm 

This program is supported by the Gandel Foundation.  

Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter, also supported by the Gandel Foundation, is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play, with an associated program of activities.
