Our vision is to make Waltham Forest a National Borough of  Storytelling. As part of the first phase of this, over 200 storytelling activities are taking place over the summer. Stories are told not just through books, but by film, art, music, dance, theatre, and photography as well.

Children’s Art Week was one of the first projects we delivered that celebrates stories through art. Many children entered from Early Years settings and schools across the borough. Each child created artwork based on one of their favourite books.
