Young people in Cannock are taking part in the Emerge Festival Project 2017-19. 24 arts festivals in 12 midland locations are being led by young people who will co-produce exciting new work celebrating the life and work of William Shakespeare.
Emerge Lab Cannock
Cannock Library and The Museum of Cannock Chase are Emerge Labs where the festival will be developed with over 30 young people aged from 11 to 25 taking part.
During weekly workshops with Fired Up Theatre and artist Josh Hawkins from Hawk Dance Theatre, young people are experimenting with different art forms, developing ideas and creating a programme for the festival which will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018.
For more information about Emerge Festival, take a look at a film produced during last year's festival EMERGE 2017
