Young artists kicking off the Emerge Lab at Cannock Library

On Saturday 21 April 2018 young residents of Cannock will host an all day festival celebrating Shakespeare!

The festival’s content will be developed and delivered by local young people who are currently attending weekly workshops at Cannock Library and Museum Of Cannock Chase, exploring different art forms.

During the workshops Fired Up Theatre and artist Josh Hawkins from Hawk Dance Theatre, are encouraging young people aged between 11 and 25 to experience music, drama, spoken word, poetry & visual arts, to develop ideas and create their own programme of events for the festival celebarting all things Shakespeare!

24 arts festivals in 12 midland locations are being led by young people across the region who will co-produce exciting new work celebrating the life and work of William Shakespeare.

Emerge is led by The Mighty Creatives with support from Arts Connect West Midlands and funded by The Spirit of 2012.
