22 October 2022
with Rebecca Crookshank
22 October 2022 | Alserkal Arts Foundation
In the first of a series of creative happenings with Rebecca Crookshank, apply now to take part in UN-WRITING on Saturday 22 October from 11 - 5pm at Common Room (Warehouse 51).
This workshop invites young playwrights, writers, and creatives to explore the role of audiences and community through a composition of craft, chance, serendipity, words and silence. Introducing her transdisciplinary influences and experimental approach to form, Rebecca gently guides participants through writing exercises, drawing elements from the unconscious and creating a space to immerse ourselves in the process as if it was the work itself. Ignited by rituals of daily life, we absorb and gather our own creative processes as we write and unwrite together.
To participate, please apply here by Thursday 13 October with a short bio and a letter that begins with the line “Dear… I decided to make up a story for you, I hope you like it” and continue the story for someone (500 words max).
Confirmed participants will be notified on Monday 17 October
