Curatorial Collective – Writing Workshop

The NewBridge Project : Gateshead

Free for members | £3 for non–members

Please book here.

Join us at the NewBridge Project : Gateshead for the Curatorial Collective – Writing Workshop with writer and director Lauren Vevers.

In this relaxed workshop, we will be writing from art to form our own ekphrastic poetry. It will involve a series of exercises that prompt us to think differently about how to approach the writing process by incorporating elements of play. You don’t need to be a writer to attend. All welcome and encouraged!

This event has been initiated through the Curatorial Collective, part of the Practice makes Practice programme and is an on-going project incited by independent curator Jessica Bennett and The NewBridge Project. The Curatorial Collective is a series of events, providing curators with a programme of support and encouraging development outside of a university campus. Any levels of curatorial experience or interest are welcome to participate.

Lauren Vevers is a writer and director from Newcastle upon Tyne. Her writing has been published in The iNotionThe Real StoryHobart PulpPopshot Magazine, and others. She writes about theatre and feelings for Exeunt and A Younger Theatre. Her debut short film as a writer / director, LOVE SPELL, was recently awarded funding from BFI and is in production with Freya Films. She runs creative writing workshops for young people and community groups in the North.

Practice Makes Practice is an artist development programme run by artists for artists. Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping artists with the necessary skills to manage their practice, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond.
