Event description

Description

Invitation

As part of the Language Acts and Worldmaking project, we invite translators and interpreters to take part in a two-day creative workshop which will use dramatic techniques and artistic practice to explore aspects of working with languages in society today.

Registration Information

The workshop is free of charge and participants should attend the full two-day programme.
Friday 11th May 2018: 2pm - 5pm and Saturday 12 May 2018: 10.30am - 5.30pm

Some small travel bursaries will be available. Please contact languageacts@kcl.ac.uk if you would like to be considered for a travel bursary. We will also be happy to answer any questions you might have about the workshop.

Workshop

The workshop will be led by theatre director Sophie Besse (Director of theatre company PsycheDelight). The workshop will provide innovative tools to enable participants to explore the nature of their work as well as their own thoughts and experiences. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities drawing on artistic practices relating to drama, photography and sculpture with the aim of creating a forum for reflection on their work. These activities will also go some way towards addressing how public service language professionals can communicate the inspiring work they do without breaching codes of conduct and confidentiality.

Context

‘Languages at Times of Crisis’ is a project devleoped by Dr Alice Hazard and Dr Sophie Stevens within Language Acts and Worldmaking and aims to explore the vital work carried out by translators and interpreters. The project will explore the diversity of this type of work and therefore participants are encouraged to consider ‘crisis’ in the broadest sense in relation to their work. This may include work in environments such as social care, healthcare and the law, as well as many others. Please also see the Languages at Times of Crisis Event Page
