Event description
This half-day symposium will explore death and dying through writing workshops based on imagery and visual representations of mortality.

About this Event

In our second symposium, Death Writes: Images we look to visual imagery of death, dying and grief as a catalyst for more thinking and writing about 'the inevitable'.

We would like to host a group of participants who are practitioners, researchers, thinkers, artists, writers and makers of various kinds who are already engaged with the theme of death, dying and bereavement and are looking to create work on this theme. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage in discussions and writing practice specifically in response to visual imagery.

We will explore the topic of death and dying in a variety of ways throughout the afternoon, where we'll use image as writing prompt, narrative, and documentation.

About Us:

We are an interdisciplinary Arts Lab hosted by the University of Glasgow. Our aim is to hone critical and creative skills on the universal topic of death, dying and bereavement. We launched in 2019 to build a community of thinkers, writers, practitioners and makers who are interested in this subject and who want to generate collaborations across disciplines and contexts.
