Avron Partnership

Grants for Young Writers

The Young Playwright’s Partnership brought together MUJU and Arvon to offer two grants to a young Muslim and a young Jewish playwrights and existing members of MUJU to attend our theatre course, Tell it the only way you can at the Totleigh Barton Arvon centre in Devon from 21 –26 November 2011.

Arvon and MUJU have raised funds to offer two limited Grants to support young writers aged 18 to 35 year olds who were unable to afford our course fees, and enable them to benefit from an Arvon week.

Who are Arvon?

The Arvon Foundation run residential creative writing courses which aim to challenge, inspire and transform your writing. For over 40 years we have created an ideal environment for thousands of writers, where newcomers can begin writing and existing writers can improve their craft and find new sustenance and inspiration.

Our courses take you away from everyday life and place you gently in one of our four beautiful writers’ houses, insulated from the busy world of email, internet and mobile phones. We will give you time and space to write, supported by expert practical tuition and the encouragement of a community of writers. With two published and professional writers as tutors – and a mid-week guest – our simple formula continues to boost the writing lives of thousands of writers every year. Courses run from Monday afternoon to Saturday afternoon.

‘Arvon is the single most important organisation for sharing and exploring creative writing in the UK’

One to One Education Pack

One to One have created a pilot educational pack based on the MUJU show,  Tunnel Vision. The pack has been piloted in Manchester and is intended to use in drama classes, RE and as part of the  Citizenship curriculum.

MUJU are now working with One to One, reviewing the content and streamlining it for easy use by secondary schools and teachers.

For now, the pack is an open resource. It contains a bunch of information, activities, scenes from our show and discussion points.

If you would like to discuss One to One and MUJU running training for staff or workshops from the pack for your school or educational setting, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
