The Voice of a City is a multi-disciplinary project that started in April 2017 and will end in 2019. During the process the artists have been collecting and writing stories on ordinary life and people in the north, south, east and west of Europe (Tbilisi, Athens, Kortrijk, Lille, Armentières, Mynämäki,, Turku and more). Based on conversations with a diverse range of inhabitants in different locations (cooks, teachers, politicians, taxi drivers, builders…) they are now, amongst other things, developing a docu-fictional novel that will mix fact and fiction and reflect on contemporary life through the subjective accounts of their encounters.
Over the course of a 2-day intensive workshop Nada and Mark invite you to get an insight into the writing practices used in the process, through a hands-on approach.
Day 1: INTRODUCTION and BLIND-DATE EVENT
Day 2: WRITING PRACTISE and DISCUSSION
The workshop is open to anyone with an interest in creative writing and meeting strangers. The working language will be English but you are free to write in the language of your choice (French, Flemish…).

Following this, a selection will be made (there are only 10 places available) and you will receive a mail confirming, or not, your place in the workshop by the 12th of June 2018.
The day ends with discussion, feedback and exchange with the group.
