Word2017 Festival

Islington's annual Word festival is a unique month-long celebration of words and their power to transform lives

It is delivered through a programme of specially-commissioned arts projects and events. The festival is designed to encourage residents of all ages across Islington to develop their enjoyment in reading, writing and freedom of expression through participation in high quality arts activities and events.
Word2017 will once again have a particular focus on highlighting the impact that reading and writing can have on mental health and wellbeing, and on involving those who may find it harder to have their voices heard.
From 1 to 30 June find words in football stadiums, schools and streets, libraries and theatres, pubs and playgrounds - there’s something for everyone in Word2017.
You can also get more information at the Word Festival website.
