Brent Libraries have been successful in receiving a grant of £30K from the Arts Council in a joined up partnership bid with 12 other London Library Services and Apples and Snakes ( an Arts Bridge organisation). Brent was the lead library service and wrote the bid jointly with Apples and Snakes.
The funding will support the delivery of the SPINE Festival now in its 3rd year. SPINE Festival is an innovative celebration of arts and literature for children, young people and families. The ambition is for SPINE Festival to become a recognised brand with a strong emphasis on inclusion. The Festival runs annually February to March. The funds will pay for two ‘artists in residents’ to provide workshops for children and families in Wembley Library.
Full details of the events program will be available shortly
