Objectives

Little Green Pig offer free writing workshops for young people in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.

We believe that everyone, whatever their background, has a right to write and needs a space to create. We believe something special happens when you pick up a pen; we believe that writing grows self-confidence and communication, develops empathy, and builds healthy communities. We serve all young people, but we focus our resources on those from Brighton and East Sussex’s most deprived communities, both in and out of schools, ensuring that children from all backgrounds have a chance to express themselves creatively, tell their stories and expand their horizons.

Activities

We are growing rapidly, and have doubled our reach over the two years; in 2017-18, we worked with over 850 young people, often in collaboration with others (Brighton Digital Festival, Brighton Fringe, Radio Reverb, Into University). As well as storybooks written by young people, we have created radio shows, soap operas, an immersive walking tour, comic books, a crime drama and a travel guide. For the past two years, we have been resident in a primary school for a term each year.
