Event description
A walking workshop exploring techniques of place-based writing, considering methods such as concrete poetry, psychogeography, and frottage.

About this event

Join Fieldnotes in Thamesmead for a walking workshop exploring techniques of place-based writing. The workshop will consider methods such as concrete poetry, psychogeography and frottage as ways of mapping the urban landscape and architecture through graphic scores, typography and language.

Following a route through the centre of Thamesmead, we will consider how acts of mapping and mark-making also involve poetry and the performative, inviting participants to explore and envisage techniques of notation between writing and drawing.

The workshop will also look at references and texts from writers and poets including Robert Walser, Georges Perec, Kōbō Abe and Anne Carson.

Through a series of short informal exercises participants will be encouraged to experiment, with a focus on process rather than outcomes. All levels of experience of writing are welcome.

The session will be led by Bella Marrin (Fieldnotes Editor, artist and writer) & Elaine Tam (Fieldnotes Senior Editor, curator and writer).

*Please note refreshments & materials are provided. Places are limited*
