About the Project

Earlier this year we ran the Power of Stories, a FREE creative writing project for Black people aged 18+ in the East of England celebrating Black identity and joy. 

Workshops were led by award-winning Playwright and Screenwriter, Juliet Gilkes Romero and Writer and Coach, Rob Wright. This project was part of events inspired by Ipswich Museums & Aspire Black Suffolk’s Power of Stories exhibition. 

The project brought together participants aged from 19 to 81. The group created stories and plays inspired by their own experiences and their ideas about love, life and what it means to be a Black person living locally. 

We’ll be publishing a collection of writing from the project and we can’t wait to share it with you. Please watch this space for more details coming soon!
