About 14%: Hometown Pride & Identity

A free creative workshop exploring identity, pride and connection to home, led by Bronte Appleby.

What does it mean to be 'homegrown talent' and how do we make our home proud of us? How is this expressed in healthy or unhealthy ways?

We'll be looking at people like Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) and Jordan Davies (Wrexham AFC) and the ways in which they have hometown pride or have made their hometowns proud of them.

It will then culminate into creative writing, poetry or spoken word expressing our thoughts and opinions on the topic.
