Performance Space and Runway Present

Writing for Experimental Art

 

Interested in performance and writing? Performance Space and Runway are offering seven participants the chance to participate in a free full day writers program in association with the Liveworks 2016 program, Saturday 5 November 2016.

Experimental, interdisciplinary and emergent practices offer unique challenges to writers and critics. Treading ever-shifting ground between forms, this intransigence can make for thorny subject matter, even for the most intrepid critic. This workshop, facilitated by curator and writer Bec Dean, will guide you through writing exercises and give you tools to create pithy, informative and original texts that celebrate multidisciplinary practice and expand your skills in writing between forms.

In addition to focused mentoring by experienced practitioners, participation in the workshop will include a ticket to a Liveworks show of your choice, which will provide the experimental fodder to generate a new text. The program will also include an introduction to Liveworks and ongoing editorial support from Performance Space and Runway Australian Experimental Art, with potential publication on Runway’s forthcoming online Conversations platform.

To be considered, please submit:

  • CV
  • writing sample
  • email introduction, outlining in 2-300 words your interest in this program

 

APPLICATIONS DUE: 7 October 2016
