Arvon gave me back my coloured pen that was lost under the ashes of a burnt country – Afghanistan
Ahmed, Freedom from Torture
Every year, Arvon works in partnership with many organisations ranging from charities, arts organisations, socially disadvantaged groups and community groups to higher educational institutions and businesses.
With these groups we create bespoke Arvon writing courses to match the interests and skills of the writers. These are special courses designed with our partners. They are some of the most socially and artistically progressive work we do.
Recent partnerships have taken place with the following groups: Kali Theatre, The Princess Royal Carers Trust, Kids Company, Freedom from Torture, Vita Nova, Foyle Young Poets, The Royal Court International Playwrights, Romany Theatre Company, Sable Magazine, English Pen, and Spread the Word.
Arvon also has an ongoing partnership with The Jerwood Charitable Foundation. This unique programme has offered nine aspiring writers the opportunity to participate in a year-long mentoring scheme. Find out more
