Newham Word Festival

150 150 Luke

Client: Applecart Arts
Topic:  Youth Advocacy & Empowerment

What we did: Each year Newham Council, in collaboration with the Discovery Centre & Applecart Arts, host a two-week festival of performances, poetry, exhibitions and workshops across the borough to celebrate the power of the written word. We were delighted to be asked back to Applecart Arts for a second year to train young aspiring producers on filmmaking and journalistic skills. In turn these young people were then supported by our filmmaker to put these skills into practice and document the Word Festival. This short documentary was then used by stakeholders to showcase the event and promote to future audiences & practitioners.
