Adam Art Gallery Poetry Workshops: only a few spaces left!


WORKING THE GAP
Writing Workshops and Reading
12pm Wednesday 13 & 20 August
Adam Art Gallery

*There are only a few spaces left, so to secure a place in the workshops, please register now.

As a follow on from the Adam Art Gallery’s Working the Gap symposium, poet and PhD candidate Therese Lloyd sets Kim Pieters’ exhibition what is a life? as the context for two one-hour writing workshops. Using the earliest form of art writing, ‘ekphrasis’, as her model, she invites participants to explore the exhibition as a basis for their own work. Working individually and in a group, new and established writers are offered the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the possibilities and challenges of using words to respond to visual art.


Reading
5pm Friday 22 August
Adam Art Gallery

Participants in the Writing Workshops present their writing in a public session chaired and introduced by writer and academic Harry Ricketts. Reading your work is voluntary, but attendance is an important final part of the Working the Gapprogramme. Everyone is invited to join us for drinks in the Hunter Lounge after the reading.


*Please note:
Places are limited to 20 applicants. Registration is essential. For more information and to register, please contact: Ann Gale, Gallery Administrator, ann.gale@vuw.ac.nz,
