Fighting Words Exhibition
3 - 30 August
We are delighted to present the Fighting Words Exhibition as part of our August Kids Month here at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre! Fighting Words Exhibition is a creative writing project by local Primary School Children. The project took place at the Riverside Theatre with six classes from Ballysally Primary School and St Malachys Primary School who set out on a creative writing journey. The aim of the project, in patron Glenn Patterson’s words, was to ‘empower children and young people to become authors of their own lives’. Each class worked collaboratively and individually to create brand new stories and all participants left the workshops as published writers, with their own illustrated storybook.
We are exhibiting the beginnings of some of their tales, we hope it will inspire you to write your own chapter too!
