WORD is a year-round programme of innovative arts projects and events in Islington, where arts companies, libraries and communities come together to create, share and experience new and original work. It provides a platform for new and often unheard voices and stories, promoting wellbeing, and reducing isolation and loneliness by bringing communities together to share stories. WORD festivals are packed with inspiring activities and events for all ages. Launching on National Poetry Day 2019 – find WORD this October indoors and outside, in the libraries, art galleries, museums, community centres, gardens and streets of Islington.
