Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and a grant from SWRLS, Word Live in Libraries is a 20-venue tour of diverse authors and creative practitioners taking place in person, online and in hybrid format across our region throughout 2023. The tour is delivered in partnership with Literature Works.
We are delighted that our application to Arts Council England was successful. We look forward to collaborating with SWRLS-member libraries to jointly select authors and practitioners designed to engage new arrivals, teens, young people and a variety of different communities less familiar with benefitting from creative events in library spaces. Details of the programme will be announced soon.
