Open spaces: Open to Write creative writing workshop

Time: 17:30 - 19:00
Online

Have you been scribbling away during the pandemic? Would you like release from the pressure of exams? Are you fascinated by words and would like a chance to start writing?

If any of these apply to you why not come along to the next Open Spaces creative writing workshop at 5.30pm on Wednesday 26 May and try your hand at poetry with writer and director of the Poetry Shed, Sharon Morris.

We will look at types of poetry and Sharon will set some practical exercises in ways of writing.  You are welcome to write in any language and/or bring languages together.  Please bring a pencil or a pen and a piece of paper for a workshop aimed at opening up your writing. This is a writing workshop designed to help you to start a piece of creative writing, with suggestions as to how to write into the blank page. 

Please note the session will be on Zoom. There will be no requirement to share your writing and no previous experience of poetry necessary. Beginners welcome.

Open Spaces first Open Symposium - Wednesday 2 June

Time: 17:30 - 19:00
Online

Angela and Nigel will share stories, film, new technology (x-system) through experimentation, questions and conversations.  Together with wellbeing researcher Paras Patel, they have worked on neurophysiological measures of human emotion in music (in particular HRV) and have collaborated in bringing together experiences of dealing with trauma in the health services and in the NGO sector respectively - something of particular importance during the pandemic.

This first of the Open Spaces Open Symposiums is a rare invitation to join them at St George’s for this one off event to hear about the highly successful Connection Through Music events (including working with the Regional Staff Wellbeing Hub, set up to deal with the psychological fallout of the pandemic on staff) and the online Music for Wellbeing playlists. Come along, engage in conversation and ask your questions.
