This event will be available from 9am on Saturday 26th June
Join us to mark the launch of a groundbreaking international digital talent development programme, which equips women of Pakistani heritage in Pakistan and Britain with the tools they need to develop successful careers in the creative industries. The programme is a collaboration between BLF and Adab Festival in Pakistan, and is backed by the British Council Digital Collaboration Fund.
The event will introduce the participants – five from Bradford district and five from Pakistan – who will curate and deliver a weekend of digital literature festival events for public audiences at BLF’s Words in the Winter in November. The women will put their questions to Syima Aslam, Director and CEO of Bradford Literature Festival, and Ameena Saiyid, Director of Adab Festival in Karachi, about their personal journeys towards creating innovative literature festivals.
