Embedding diversity within Essex Book Festival 17 Nov 2015
New creative leadership of Essex Book Festival has seen the introduction of a Human Rights Strand into its programme, leading to an increased focus on diversity. PHF funding will enable the piloting of new ways of working with young people aged 14-25 in marginalised communities. It will also help to develop community links, as well as deepen understanding of the barriers currently impeding access to arts, particularly those focussed on the spoken and written word.
A programme which aims to increase the understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art, building capital through participation and social activity.
Signals Media Arts Centre will work with three primary schools in Essex to support children to improve engagement and learning in literacy, numeracy and coding skills through film and digital media approaches. They are seeking to explore partnership working with schools and demonstrate the benefits that arts and cultural organisations can bring to teaching and learning.
