The Three Dimensional PageA four-day experimental writing workshop at Flat Time House14 –17 August 2018Tuesday to Friday, 10.30am-4.30pmPrice £100
The Three Dimensional Page workshops consider multi-dimensional sites for writing through discussion and practice-based writing and production workshops. Each day is taught by a new practitioner who has created a workshop that encourages the author to be a producer, developing their writing from the page, to a site, to performance and installation, to digital platforms and networks. We are looking for 10 artists and writers who want to create texts that can be translated and tested across multiple formats and sites. The cost of the 4-day workshop is £100 (£25 per workshop). The workshops take place in the studio home of artist John Latham (1921-2006).
