Digital Writes is an organisation dedicated to providing children and young people with enriching creative experiences in the fields of creative writing, visual arts, performing arts, filmmaking, music, digital arts and video games. We are committed to providing opportunities for any children and young people who are interested. However, we do run many projects dedicated to those who experience disadvantage for some reason, including disability, special educational needs, refugees and asylum seekers, economic disadvantage, and those disengaged from mainstream education.
A not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, Digital Writes is funded by Arts Council England, the Wiltshire Community Foundation, Swindon Borough Council, and from generous donations from companies such a Fireproof Games and individual donors.
Digital Writes is staffed by a team of dedicated professional artists and teachers – experts in their own artistic fields and educational fields such as special educational needs and disability.
