In 2014 applications were invited for the inaugural Max Reinhardt Literacy Awards, funded by the Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust.
The programme was developed to enable galleries, art museums and visual arts venues to support a dedicated programme of creative writing and literacy work with schools.
Funding from the Awards allowed three venues , Falmouth Art Gallery, Kettle's Yard and Manchester Art Gallery to employ a creative writer to work with a local school on a creative writing or literacy project, taking inspiration from the venue’s collections, displays or building.
The Awards are run in partnership with Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education and the National Association for Writers in Education (NAWE).
The Awards to all three venues were announced in December 2014 - click here to read more.
