The Story So Far: Word 2012-2016

Since its launch in 2012, Islington Word Festival has seen thousands of local people of all ages and backgrounds taking part in extraordinary projects and events designed to promote enjoyment in reading, writing and freedom of expression. Word has encouraged local people to find and express their voice in schools and community centres, parks and playgrounds, football grounds and libraries. This exhibition, curated by All Change Arts, captures the story so far in their own words and pictures.
