Out of school activities

Our philosophy:

We are child-led, empowering children and young people to think for themselves in our out of school activities. Attendees have access to 1-2-1 mentoring by our trained volunteers, building their confidence as independent writers. We take fun seriously.

We provide a wide range of exciting creative writing workshops for children and young people aged 7-18.  Recent writing programmes have included poetry, stories, songs, games and much more!  We showcase this creative genius in a number of ways. Young people have seen their work broadcast on BBC Radio 4, performed in the I Know I Wish I Will project and heard at the WE Wonder festival.

We have also offered Bronze and Silver Arts Awards for young people aged 12-15 and 14-17.  Attendees chose what they would like to work on alongside a diverse range of creative practitioners, developing their arts leadership skills and enhancing their creative skills in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Grimm & Co ensure that all our workshops are creative, innovative, welcoming, and (perhaps most importantly) fun!
