Abstract or Description
The idea behind the symposium was to curate a space that operates as a hub for collaboration amongst artists and as a place generates visibility for diverse critical approaches, projects and debates. Beginning in 2006 with an Arts Council-funded research project which culminated in the symposium, Writing Encounters, the space between words is an international collaborative network engaging with writing across the expanded field of literature, art and performance – including artists working with text, visual and language poetry, digital writing, performance, theater, film, music and dance. Rooted in a strongly feminist ethos, its aim is to connect writing artists and to host new collaborative projects and events.
