Writing on the Wall announced as Arts Organisation of the Year

Writing on the Wall has been awarded Art’s Organisation of the Year at this year’s LCR Culture and Creativity Awards.

More than 700 organisations were nominated and over 30 organisations and individuals shortlisted for the awards that recognise the cultural impact and vital work of creative organisations in the Liverpool City Region.

Writing on the Wall (WoW) was the only finalist shortlisted in three categories – the People’s Choice Award, the Covid-19 Creative Response (organisations) Award and, of course, the Arts Organisation of the Year Award.

The title of Art’s Organisation of the Year was awarded in recognition of the incredible work produced over the last year by the literary charity. This work included the launch of two month-long festivals, 14 projects, and writing centre The Writer’s Bloc. The Writer’s Bloc has been in the hearts and plans of WoW from its start and has now reached over 100,000 people digitally, since it came to fruition.

A statement from co-directors Mike Morris and Madeline Heneghan reads:

‘This award is a wonderful recognition of our work in 2020 and makes our 21st anniversary year celebrations even more special. We dedicate this to our supporters, funders, trustees, partners, participants, audiences, and the WoW Team. It is through their commitment to WoW that we have been able to achieve so much and this award is as much theirs as it is ours.’
