Rewrite is a small, award-winning, participatory arts organisation based in Southwark (reg charity: 1109901). We fight prejudice and injustice by bringing together young people from different backgrounds through the power of drama and creative writing (www.rewrite.org.uk). Our core activities include:
Creative ESOL – for newly arrived young migrants and refugees to develop their English language skills through drama and the arts.
React – for young people from diverse backgrounds to work together on drama projects and performances that explore the social, political and cultural issues they feel are important.
Free Writers – for young people from diverse backgrounds to develop their writing skills, tackle relevant issues and gain a platform for sharing their work.
Creative Writing Competition – open to young people in Greater London, culminating in rehearsed readings of the winners’ work at our annual celebration event.
We are at an exciting stage in our development and are now looking for a new venue to base all our activities in. We need 2 desk spaces (1 full-time and 1 for three days per week) and a workshop space for our regular after-school and evening sessions. We are looking for a venue in Southwark, ideally as close to Elephant and Castle / Walworth as possible. We would like it to be a permanent new home for Rewrite and are looking for a friendly, community environment which is safe and accessible for young people.
If you have suitable office and workshop space to hire or are another small charity interested in partnering with us in order to find a venue, please get in touch with Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07542 143799.
