Engage! is a collaborative project between four UNESCO cities of literature around Europe – Barcelona (Spain), Krakow (Poland), Växjö (Sweden) and Norwich (UK). Each city is running its own project focussed on cultural activism and literature. Norwich’s project is called Young Arts Professionals.

Our Young Arts Professionals were given the reins to design and deliver a Festival in a Day, as part of the 2019 Norfolk and Norwich Festival. The festival explored freedom of speech in the global and digital world – with a focus on writing and social activism in the arts.
