Over October 2009 the Free Word Centre really opened in style – there were loads of great events to mark the birth of this new hub for literature, literacy and freedom of expression. We managed to capture a few of them on camera…here’s a taster of the events from literary walks, to Manga Shakespeare workshops and Canon Tales. And it looks like there is plenty more to come from the Free Word centre!
Watch this space…there are more videos to come with the full presentations from the evening of Canon Tales and more from the series on Offence which featured panel debates on the culture of offence.
This video features the organisations that are based in the Free Word Centre, including The Reading Agency, BookTrust, Apples and Snakes, The Literary Consultancy, Article 19, Index on Censorship, The Arvon Foundation, Dalkey Archive and English PEN.
