Claire Lefévre: Writing Workshop – Putting words on your ideas
13. November 2019, 14 – 18:00 Uhr
WUK, Währingerstraße 59, 1090
The idea behind this workshop is to help artists to put words on their ideas, particularly targeting application writing (for funding, festivals, residencies etc).
The current way most work is handed out to makers and movers (in Vienna but also internationally) is through a written selection process, whether it is in the form of a CV, an artist statement or a project description. Therefore, enhancing one's writing skills should be a priority for freelance artists. In this workshop, I share key advice and methods which I gathered in my own experience as a maker/writer/freelancer. I also encourage other artists to make writing an integral part of their creative process, as opposed to something one must get over in order to finally get to the studio/stage. Moreover, the writing process can be lonely and discouraging at times, therefore practicing and learning about it in a supportive group atmosphere is definitely more pleasurable!
The workshop is free of charge but spaces are limited so registration by email is mandatory! Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot! You can also let me know if there are specific topics you would like me to address. I kindly ask each participant to bring food to share with the others, I will provide tea and coffee.
