Newham and Tower Hamlets

SPINE Festival library partners in Newham and Tower Hamlets have a range of activities for children, families and young people both online and in their local libraries and schools exploring the theme of Empathy. Included in the activities is a tour of ‘The CAT-Astrophic Adventures of Dollop and Crinkle‘, a co-commissioned theatre show with Half Moon and poets Henry Madd and Kirk-Ann Roberts.

This year Newham and Tower Hamlets boroughs are paired together to work with Dan Mayfield and Laila Sumpton, our Artists in Residence for SPINE Festival 2021. Dan and Laila will deliver school workshops and digital public events. Make sure to check out what they create on Newham and Tower Hamlets library websites.
