The Art Writers' Workshop is an intensive three-day module designed for emerging writers in the field of arts. The workshop will be conducted in English through brief lectures, practical exercises and group discussions. The participants will be introduced to different platforms and formats of critical writing, including curatorial notes, exhibition catalogues, press releases, reviews and will explore how these existing forms can best engage them as a writer.
Each participant will visit an exhibition at Serendipity Arts Festival 2019 in the company of Belinder Dhanoa, the workshop facilitator. Subsequently, they will draft a review, workshop the results, and learn the tools required to further develop their writing and critical skills. Through intensive discussions about their texts, they will consider such issues as the development of a critical voice and narrative structure.
