We are very pleased to announce that the National Lottery Community Fund will be funding Commonword’s project ‘Through the Darkness’: a creative writing workshop series with women and non-binary people from refugee and migrant communities in Greater Manchester, launching February 2023.

Responding to the needs and interests of community members, Through the Darkness will explore identity, displacement and adaptation to a new culture through poetry, short story and play-writing, culminating in a sharing event and publication.

Thank you to all National Lottery players for supporting important community initiatives and making this project possible.
