Pop-Up Lab 2017

9th – 10th November | Peterborough, UK

Invigorate your teaching practice or literature programming by exploring imaginative approaches to engaging young readers and writers through visual storytelling.

Attendees will be able to choose up to 6 sessions per day from a packed programme of 30 hands-on workshops, demonstrations and conversations with 28 organisations and individuals. Many sessions are artist-led. Attendees can explore several strands running through the visual storytelling theme – including ‘digital resources and practice’, ‘language and translation’ and a strong international presence – but you do not need to be experts or practitioners in those fields: because Pop Up Lab is cross-sector space in which to explore and experiment, share practice and learn new things.

 A full programme schedule is available www.pop-up.org.uk/lab2017 and attendees will be asked to choose sessions in advance. Tickets available: One day and two day.
