For the past six months, Autograph has collaborated with local charity Ministry of Stories and the young writers aged 8 - 15 who attend their Writing Labs. Taking inspiration from Autograph's exhibitions and collection, participants considered questions of identity and representation, culminating in a project responding to the question what makes a hero? And now you're invited to come and see the results!
Each young writer has picked their favourite work from the term to polish up to share in the display, featuring family members and best friends, football GOATs and firm-but-fair teachers, super-strong superheroes and ancient doctors. Join us to celebrate their achievements.
Ministry of Stories champions the writer in every child. Co-founded by author Nick Hornby in 2010, Ministry of Stories helps young people write brighter futures for themselves through the power of their ideas and imagination.
