These writing workshops will give participants a chance to respond to themes raised throughout the 4 day festival, which will range from discussions on the digital commons, open spectrum,technolgoical obsolescence, net-art, future networks and the mysterious phenomenon of the ‘transdisciplinary’.
The workshops will be informal, with plenty of tea and comfort provided to ensure lively discussion and uninhibited writing, whether factual or fictive!
The Writing Workshop, in existence since 2007, is now an open pop-up forum within which participants feel safe & encouraged to explore writing through a considered use of language and theme. In the past, participants in The Writing Workshop have been invited to discuss & share ideas of interest to them, with a view to inspiring some interest amongst their peers. Participants have been invited to ‘host’ a workshop, setting a theme or action for the session, framing discussion, inviting participation, developing ideas through discussion and writing exercises.
The Writing Workshop has been facilitated by Jessamyn Fiore (Playwright, Curator), Clay Mcleod Chapman (writer & performer), Wreckio Ensemble (Theatre Company NYC), Bernardine Carroll (Artist), Séan Lynch (artist) & Kevin Barry (writer), amongst many others.
