Critical Fabulations - A writing workshop for visual thinkers and artists. FREE for all Scottish residents.

Glasgow School of Art

How do you feel about writing? Many artists and creative practitioners view themselves as visual thinkers and feel writing is not relevant to their practice or perhaps even intimidating. Join us for a supportive and imaginative workshop where you can explore writing in a creative, judgement free, environment. Writing is a skill that can support many practices and disciplines. It is a method of ideas generation, bringing clarity and as a tool for experimentation. The workshop has been designed to help artists explore writing in a way that invites surprising connections, clarity, reflexivity, and imagination. This course will expose participants to a variety of writing genres and expand their understanding of how writing can be incorporated into a practice. Open to all artists resident in Scotland not currently enrolled in full time education, this course will help students reconnect with writing as a creative tool.
