Spread the Word

A great literature project in conjunction with the Whitechapel Idea Store and Spread the Word.

1st March 2010 - 31st December 2010

The project offered a 2-part programme consisting of creative reading and writing sessions for school groups in the Whitechapel Idea Store, and after-school workshops in 4 Idea Stores and one branch library. Work from both programmes was showcased at the conclusion of the project.

Working in partnership with Third Sector Voluntary Organisations helped find new ways of engaging families in cultural activities. Planned outcomes:

  • Enhanced knowledge and understanding of cultural forms;
  • Increased transferable skills/gaining new skills for producing cultural outputs;
  • Enhanced coherence in cultural offer;
  • Improved quality of the cultural offer.
