with events such as exhibition tours, studio visits, talks, and group discussions. Each day the
group will explore a different aspect of writing and this creative process, including performance,
collaboration, response, critiquing, exhibiting, and more.
Workshops will be facilitated by artists and writers Nathan O’Donnell (Paper Visual Art), Lisa Freeman,
and Lily Cahill (winner of DCC/VAI Art Writing Award 2019). Participants will receive exhibition tours at
the three galleries, visit artist Suzanne Walshe in her studio at Fire Station Artists’ Studios, attend a
talk by writer Kevin Breathnach (Next Generation Artist 2018), and more. Participants will be encouraged
to think about various possibilities of writing in and around art and to be open to engaging with new

Collaborative Language-Making Workshop
In association with Dublin Learning City Festival

During this workshop partcipants will be asked to collaborate through text and language to deliver short presentations or performances. Participants will be invited to find descriptive/emotive language and words in the

collaboratively to consider timing, placement of words and actions (if any).
The outcome will be the development of a new narrative that will be removed from its original context.
Participants will gain experience of performing this ‘new language’ in front of a group and receiving feedback.
Venue: The LAB Gallery, studio 4
