Unleashing Potential – Building a Better Society

The RSA East of England Conference on 29th June is set to explore the creative potential that lies within the region and amongst the 2000 members of the Royal Society for the Arts living in the Eastern region.Image 2

A full programme for the day includes a Market Place of ideas and projects from across the region, a range of workshops on urbanism, education, sustainability and community initiatives. It will explore opportunities to work together and create a network of interest.

Keynote speaker is John Bird founder of The Big Issue and main speakers are Vikki Heywood, Chair FRSA and Malcolm Noble Chair of the East of England.

The iconic building of the Centre for Mathematical Studies is an exciting venue and will provide the space and inspiration for a day full of future collaboration.

At SmithMartin Partnership, we are pleased to be attending the event, bringing colleagues and art projects, and helping to support the arrangements and organisation of the day.

Using SmithMartin technology forconversations- but now for eBooks and print services too!

Books Go Walkabout, our international literacy project,  has just started on a new journey, into e-publishing.

An exciting new adventure and we are pleased to start our journey with a book in our series called Writing about Africa. Short stories and general fiction about Africa – travel, images and character, with lots more to come.

The BgW team would be happy to talk with authors and creative writers about our literacy project. Helping us find new ways of presenting positive stories about the great continent, offering new markets and new readers for your work. You can contact us here.

The first story, The Goat That Vanished   is by Ifeoma Onyefulu. A story of a goat, some elders and a wedding gift that went wrong… a story of culture, humour and family life.

Ifeoma writes for children and uses her captivating photos of African life as she travels across the continent. Buy this short story from the Amazon Kindle Store – for less than the price of a cup of coffee here.

Our publications are set to grow, working with the Worldreader programme, whose charitable work distributes 300 stories per Kindle, free to readers throughout Africa. A great project!

Our eBooks and print publications are designed to feed into social projects supporting children and literacy in Africa, but their interest is world wide. Already Ifeoma’s story is available across the globe, in 9 different countries.

A real success for Books Go Walkabout…join us on the journey.
