We are going digital!
As we start to slowly find our way back into a ‘new normal’, Causley Festival of Arts and Literature has taken on a huge and exciting challenge. You won’t need to cross out yet another future event from your calendar: We’re going digital!
Our Festival committee is stepping up to the task. Although this is a challenge and a learning process for all of us, our mindset was: “If it’s possible, we should make it happen!”
Taking the Festival online means we’re able to open up the workshops, talks and readings to a wider audience. Keeping Charles Causley’s name alive and ‘out there’ is at the heart of the Festival. So, it’s great that we’ll have the chance to spread the word even further and can take this event beyond Causley’s birth place of Launceston.
We all know that Charles Causley is a poet of place, with Launceston at the heart of his life and work. This year, though, our digital Causley Festival of Arts and Literature can reinforce one of the Trust’s key objectives – to keep his legacy alive by spreading the word about him and his writing even more widely than ever before. We may all know how accessible Charles’ poetry is; but much of the world still doesn’t. Now’s the time to take fresh new steps towards changing that, by taking greater advantage of the modern, digital world.
