Join the My Story team – take part in a Creator Day!
Learn new skills, gain experience and a professional reference from the lead artists and Hertfordshire Libraries project team.
Hertfordshire Libraries and Nysa Projects are busy pulling together an exciting programme of events and activities which will be running in libraries across Hertfordshire this autumn and winter and into 2022. Since being awarded a grant by Arts Council England, we have been recruiting artists to work with Hitchin and North Watford Libraries as artists-in-residence and we have also programmed a series of ‘Creator Days’ which will provide opportunities for people (16+) to work alongside professional artists and build a portfolio in the arts.
The sessions are open to all but especially suited to young emerging artists and musicians interested in developing their practice and participating in a community project.
Upcoming Creator Days
My Story Creator Days offer participants insight into how to pull together a programme of public events exploring the skills necessary to do so, including: programming, planning, digital engagement, arts administration and creative content creation.
Saturday 25 September Translating Stories: Into Music/ Into Song
Thursday 28 October Translating Stories: Into Poetry/Into Spoken Word
Saturday 13 November Translating Stories: Into Mini Movies/Into Visual Arts

Our first Creator Day is ideal for young people interested in a career in musical arts, music production or someone who would like to develop their existing skills.
We will be running two separate one day courses in Stevenage Library on Saturday 25 September.
These one-day sessions are the starting point, there will be further opportunities to continue to develop your piece which will be part of the My Story Festivals and My Story Touring Exhibition in 2022.
