Writing Workshop with Anna Miles

May 28, 4pm - 6pm

Te Tuhi, 13 Reeves road, Pakuranga Auckland

$10

Anna Miles is an Auckland Art Dealer and part-time Lecturer in Visual Arts at AUT where she teaches a paper on writing by artists. She has a particular interest in how artists write and speak about their work.

 

In this workshop Anna will discuss the role and value of writing about your work. She will suggest ways of cutting this task down to size and making the most of its possibilities while not over labouring it. She will introduce examples of imaginative approaches and suggest ways to enjoy a task that is often regarded as analogous to pulling out your own teeth.

This workshop is made possible thanks to the generous support of Arts Out East, Te Tuhi Contemporary Art Trust and Howick Local Board.
