In the Open: Writers WorkshopSeptember 23 2017 – September 23 2017
In the Open is a major two venue art exhibition covering important ecological issues taking place at the SIA Galley and Bank Street Arts during September. Many of the works feature collaborations between writers and artists who make joint responses to particular places. This workshop will take inspiration from these working processes so that you can produce the draft of a new piece of writing.
We will start at the SIA Gallery at 1pm and will have a guided tour round the work on display, exploring the techniques used. There will be a short exercise in response. Then we will walk to the Bank Street Arts and gather material en-route. There will then be a guided tour at Bank Street Arts and a final exercise to bring your materials together. We will finish at 4pm.
This workshop is free and open to anyone who would like to explore the exhibition and produce some new writing. It is led by Andrew Jeffrey who is a Sheffield based poet completing a Creative Writing PhD at Sheffield Hallam University and who has work in the exhibition.
