Levelling Up Through Literacy - the power of cross-sector collaboration
- Tuesday 4 October 2022 (13:00-14:00)
Birmingham Stories is a unique literacy campaign, delivered in partnership between University of Birmingham and the National Literacy Trust.
About this event
This pioneering research-led collaboration brings together universities, local government and the third sector, taking coordinated action across Birmingham to deliver arts-based programmes that drive up literacy levels and foster a love of stories.
This talk will explore how cross-sector collaboration can level up educational attainment and employability skills, as well as improve health outcomes and social capital. The panellists will discuss the benefits of taking a place-based approach in a superdiverse city, working with children, young people and adults from a range of backgrounds and experiences.
The event will take place in The Exchange's Assembly Room (3 Centenary Square, Birmingham B1 2DR).
The University of Birmingham is hosting a number of party conference events. Join us at our fringe events to discuss the policy-relations questions of the moment and discover how our research is shaping policy decisions.
