The Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust, the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE), and engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, have announced the second Max Reinhardt Literacy Awards.
Galleries, art museums and visual arts venues in England are invited to submit proposals to host the Max Reinhardt Literacy Awards 2016-17, supported by the Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust, which will grant three venues an Award of £6,000 to support a dedicated programme of creative writing ad literacy work with schools
The aims of the Awards are:
- For a creative writer to work with a school and a gallery/art museum/visual arts venue on a creative writing or literacy project, exploring the venue’s collections, displays or building
- For a resource to be developed by the Venue, Creative Writer, NAWE and with the school on using creative writing to explore the venue’s collections, displays or building
- For these resources to be shared with the arts and education sectors in order to encourage the greater use of galleries/art museums/visual arts venues by schools for creative writing and literacy work
Applications are invited from galleries, art museums and visual arts venues in England with experience in working with creative writers and schools, and those with little experience and for whom this would be a good opportunity to develop work in this area.
The Awards will be used towards costs relating to a creative writer working with a school and venue, and creating resource materials for the school to work with the venue on a creative writing or literacy activity;
