Claire Potter: Writing Acts

Tuesday 15 January, 11am – 4pm | The Bluecoat, Liverpool

Writing Acts is a research event conceived of by artist-writer Claire Potter. It brings together the artists, writers, and researchers, Karen Di Franco, Rose-Anne Gush, Bridget Penney, and Nathan Walker to share their research and works-in-progress that pertain to forms and modes of ‘performance writing’. The event is a closed working-session toward the development of future works and is supported by Bluecoat in collaboration with the Micro Social Cultures programme organised by Jamie Sutcliffe for Bosse & Baum, London.
