Togetherness in the built environment.
The root systems of healthy trees, through underground mycorrhizal networks, are known to feed and strengthen weaker neighbouring trees. Linked root to root, a row of Aspen can resemble a single tree. This dimension of being “rooted” implies not simply individual strength, but the essential role of support networks.
In a time of unprecedented change, where is the way forward in supporting our neighbours and communities? What openings can we find to make up for lost time in seeking to re-connect with the land? What memories or histories can we draw from in order to remake our support networks even more open and caring? And finally, what might creative process offer?
The Write ON 2020 workshop is an opportunity to take the time to develop the capacities to articulate the meaningful in our urban environment. It’s about words. And about contemporary expressions of visual form. We seek explorative and provocative thinking.
All are invited to apply to be supported in developing a writing practice.The annual program is open to professional and aspiring writers: artists and architects, as well as individuals who work in film, digital media, design, theatre, public art, planning, urbanism, anthropology and geography.
The workshop includes four writing sessions and work with an individual mentor to develop a piece of writing. Write ON 2020 will run between June 20 and November 15, 2020.
Applications are accepted until June 5, 2020.
Sessions will take place in the afternoon on:
- June 20, 2020 (online)
- July 11, 2020 (online)
- July 18, 2020 (online)
- November 15, 2020 (in person, anticipated)
