Mother Tongues is an Arvon project funded by the Gulbenkian Foundation, which encourages young people to write in both English and their mother tongue.
This film shows 16 Urdu-speaking young people from The Leeds Co-operative Academy who visited Lumb Bank for a residential creative writing course led by Anjum Malik and Ishy Din (read Ishy’s own Arvon journey here).
For more information about the project visit our Mother Tongues webpage.
This Autumn we are holding Professional Development Days for teaching staff : Inspiring EAL Learners through the Power of Creative Writing, for more information see our Teacher Opportunities page.
