This film was made by Brett Chapman in association with Leeds Art Gallery, Stanningly Primary School, Poet Helen Mort and musician Samuel Moore. This film was produced as part of the Max Reinhardt Literacy Awards (MRLA) and describes a creative project made to enhance the literacy levels of their students using art and creative writing. It is hoped that the film will inspire others to run a similar project and create networks within their community.
MRLA is a programme conceived by the Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust in memory of the publisher, Max Reinhardt. It has been developed with the support of Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, and the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE) to enable galleries, art museums and visual arts venues to support a dedicated programme of creative writing and literacy work with schools. The Awards are funded by the Max Reinhardt Charitable Trust, with additional support from the Ernest Cook Trust.
