HighTide is launching Power of Stories, a FREE creative writing project for Black people aged 18+ in the East of England celebrating Black identity and joy. 

Workshops will take place in person and online this September and October and no experience is necessary. This is a chance to learn new skills, meet new people and use creativity to process and look forwards. 

No experience of writing is necessary and we welcome participants who have never done anything like this before!

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

Participants can sign up for the project here or by clicking on the QR code on the poster.
