Three amazing weeks.
I was a visual artist before I switched to writing, and for a long time I have been plotting a new course that used words and images – designed for writers who wanted to play around with visuals, visual artists who wanted to explore using writing, and those who, like me, like to use both. Creating the City: Visually Literate was the result. It ran over three Fridays earlier this summer. We began at the Mary Ward Centre, and returned there to share work each week. We visited Sexology at the Wellcome Collection, Duane Henson and the Pavilion at the Serpentine Galleries, and William Blake – both at Tate Britain, and also on the streets of Waterloo.
All the prompts and the resulting work can be found on the pages:
