Celebrating Our Creative Community: 11 by 11 Festival 2021

The 2021 Festival Partnership Project invites 11 by 11 Partner organisations and borough schools to work together on a digitally-delivered festival from 5-9 July 2021. Work may be extended to in-person delivery if official guidance has been updated by this point. Organisations were asked for their interest in Autumn 2020, but we will be offering options for lighter touch engagement with schools for those unable to work in a one on one capacity. Please see the briefing video and related documents for further information:
