Reaching new audiences and engaging through co-creation.
Co-relate is working with the charity Margate Bookie to bring people together through books. Margate Bookie is an annual literary festival with readings, workshops and interactive sessions at venues on Margate's harbour and in the Old Town, including the Turner Contemporary.
From November 2019 to November 2021, Co-relate worked in partnership with the Margate Bookie to pilot the Margate Bookie Young Producers. This was an opportunity for young people to work with Bookie to produce their own literary events, gaining valuable experience, contacts and work for their portfolios. Find out more on the young producers' page. We also worked with them to showcase a new project - The Feedback Machine - at Disrupt Festival 2021.
In 2019 we connected with schools and a range of community groups to bring a diverse range of audiences to an incredibly exciting live November Bookie, coinciding with the Turner Prize coming to Margate.
In 2018 we produced a brochure to promote the Bookie's Poetry Journey workshops to new audiences and delivered a zine-making workshop to young people working with the Princes Trust.
