What does it do?

High Street Stories supports the development of literacy skills and enthusiasm for reading.

High Street Stories:

  • Uses Haringey’s varied environment and rich cultural resources to inspire and motivate participants.
  • Builds composition and performance skills, and transferable skills such as working with others.
  • Helps participants see themselves as story-makers, story-tellers, writers and readers.

Where appropriate, we use the Arts Award qualification to accredit children and young people’s learning and achievement.

Who is it for?

To date, we have delivered High Street Stories for children and young people. We aim to work with wider audiences in the future.
