We’re in the process of contacting all successful applicants and will be introducing you to our Young Arts Professionals soon.

About Engage!

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 will be given the reins to design and deliver your very own Festival in a Day, as part of the 2019 Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Their festival will explore freedom of speech in the global and digital world – with a focus on cultural activism in the arts.

If you’d like more information about the project, you can email
