Join a workshop exploring the relationship between writing and film

This weekend workshop looks at the different ways writers might respond to moving image artworks. Over the two days participants will discuss a range of experimental approaches to writing and will have the chance to develop their own writing practices.

  • How might artists and writers collaborate on a text?
  • What kind of writing might be inspired by artists’ film, video and digital media?

The workshop is led by the writer and curator Mason Leaver-Yap, and also includes visits to the Steve McQueen exhibition at Tate Modern and a special guest talk by a contemporary artist working with moving images.
