The festival starts on Friday. There are things to do, watch and listen to.
Here are a few suggestions:
To do: Lockdown Made Me - creative writing workshops
The team were planning to work face to face with teenagers in Crawley before Lockdown 3 struck. Instead, they've adapted the sessions and filmed them so they are available to all. Need some home schooling inspiration? Look no further.
Join festival lead artist Sinead and local spoken work artist Woodzy for three online workshops. They will help you write your views from lockdown through a series of creative games and ideas to help you develop your poetry, lyricism and creative writing. If you submit your writing by Weds 27th January you have a chance of being in the festival too. ACCESS ALL THE WORKSHOPS HERE To watch:
