This funding will continue to support the after school writing club and creation of their newspaper called What's Going On?

Project by The Bank of Dreams & Nightmares

Your donations will allow us to continue to deliver our free after school club for children from any and all backgrounds to let their creativity explode. The funding will allow us to bring in more industry professionals to share their insights with the young writers, run the workshops, design the newspaper with beautiful illustrations and get it professionally printed and distributed.

The back page of each issue of the newspaper will have the Wall of Supporters printed on it, and will be seen by children across West Dorset and nationally as well.

The wall is made up of 1000 squares and we will print your logo or image in the number of squares you purchase. So your logo's size depends on how many squares you purchase.

We live in an age, particularly post pandemic, where there's a lot of pressure on children's mental health and well-being. Issues around climate change and the cost of living crisis now affect us all and huge budget cuts to youth services and education have left many of our children with increased gaps in provision, and we have seen a decline in self confidence as they struggle to express themselves. 

The time for creativity is NOW.

Behind every story, poem or sketch is the truth waiting to get out and we know that this is cathartic. Creative writing is a key to children solidifying their identity, finding their voice and making sense of their place in the world.  Creativity isn't just for fun, it's an essential life skill. The Bank of Dreams & Nightmares mission, is to build confidence and help mental health by empowering young people to unleash their potential through creative writing, exploring the natural world around them and get their imaginations firing.

Our free, child-led creative writing workshops use the arts to support academic, social and emotional development and provide publishing platforms for young people to express themselves and have their voices heard. We believe our programmes will help create a world where young people recognise the power of their words to change their lives, their aspirations, their situation, their environment and the world. 

Working with industry professionals, we aim to boost creativity, motivation and writing development for young people from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds and support communities in need where provision is limited or non-existent.
