WORD2013 was our biggest and best yet and saw Islington residents working closely with some of our finest artists and arts organisations on more than 49 separate events and activities. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved.
Plans are developing for WORD2014. We are now looking for Expressions of Interest from artists and arts organisations wishing to develop dynamic and innovative projects that will continue to help our residents discover the joy of reading and writing and promote freedom of expression. As ever funding is limited so the maximum that we can contribute to any project is £5,000.
The theme for Word 2014 is, ‘Unheard Voices’. We’re looking for ideas that will inspire and encourage a broad cross- section of the community to find their voices and actively participate in the festival.
Please do read the guidelines and application forms carefully before submitting your EOI. The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on 21st October 2013.
