Listening, talking, reading and writing can take place anywhere and at any time.

And that communication is about how we – as children and adults – contribute to and take part in the world around us. How, when and what we take part in provide us with the opportunity for developing skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.

The REDISCOVER literacy weekend takes place across Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9. Various events will take place in libraries and numerous public spaces and outdoor areas. Storytelling, film-making, poetry slams, illustration and music are all forms of literacy and will feature in many of the events taking place.
