Tell Your St. Ann’s Story with Panya Banjoko and Bo Olawoye

6 February 20 words: LeftLion

Local writer Panya Banjoko and Engagement Curator Bo Olawoye are working together with The Renewal Trust to build a newspaper rammed with stories, photos and art work – all about St. Ann’s…

Robin Hood Chase. St Ann's

Have you spent time in St. Ann’s? Got a story, poem, article, drawing or photo?

Panya Banjoko

Panya Banjoko – the writer, performance poet and storyteller – and local Engagement Curator Bo Olawoye are putting together a one-off publication about the St. Ann’s area of Nottingham and they need a hand from the community.

As part of the project by The Renewal Trust, the newspaper will be available for free in March 2020 after a series of creative writing workshops ran by Panya, and contributions from you lot. The whole thing aims to celebrate the local area – so get stuck in to some scribbling, have a rummage around in your drawers, or get out there and take some snaps of your favourite spots.

You’ve got until 5pm on Monday 24 February to send along your St. Ann’s memories – in whatever creative form they might take.

Email them along to [email protected] or call The Renewal Trust on 0115 911 2226 to find out more, and to be part of a proper community-focused project.

We are part of what makes Nottingham unique – not many cities in the world have a free press like us. The coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. Until March we published ten thousand magazines every month, distributing them for free to over 450 venues in and around Nottingham. As we head back into print we are asking our readers and the people who love what we do to support us.
