CREATIVE WRITING

 

Workshops culminate in live presentation & performance.

 

Workshops for Hackney Museum & Older People’s Festival were inspired by exhibition themes of Carnival & immigration, triggering stories featuring:


  • journeys
  • missions
  • significant objects: the stories they tell
  • maps, lists & photographs
  • childhood memories
  • obsessions

 

Workshops with the Geffreye Museum, Waltham Forest & Hackney Older Women’s Groups focused on:

 

  • environmental issues
  • wartime reminiscences.

 

Writing tools and techniques include:

 

  • use of imagery
  • cultivating senses, moods & feelings
  • developing voices
  • interactive stories
  • vernacular language
