In 2019, John Canfield (The Poetry School) and Lina Charki (SOAS University of London) volunteered their time to deliver an incredible curriculum of creative writing workshops for the students of Haringey Unchained.
Lina was also simultaneously serving as the lead Editor from SOAS, accumulating submissions from her university peers and colleagues. The outcome of all that work was our biggest and most professionally produced magazine yet.
This was also a year marked by Haringey Unchained winning the 2019 Sixth Form College Association’s Enrichment and Employability Award. We had a lot to celebrate. With the help of WeMove for the fifth year in a row, current students and alumni members of both enrichments organised and hosted a showcase of the year’s efforts and work. The groups spent two days transforming the first floor atrium into a show stage, working together. With the imagination and support of Dan Want, Leigh, John Mansfield and the facilities team, and our fabulous technician Alan Walden, the finished space helped facilitate our best show yet.
The students from all groups and schools tirelessly rehearsed their performance pieces, supporting each other throughout the day. In front of our largest crowd EVER, almost 75 people, the students performed almost two hours of creative arts pieces. We also had the help of a team of H6FC staff.
