International literary festival development
We will form a core movement of festival organisations to co-commission and create literature works and events exploring literacy, writing and citizenship. These will celebrate cultural heritage, build bridges between communities, and discuss core issues around democracy, climate change and social inclusion. These co-commissioned works and events will be toured to festivals internationally using existing partnerships in Pakistan, Singapore and India. We will share research and best practice on festival resilience and impact. We have significant international reach and existing experience in curating and creating such work.
