Online – Gathering Ground: Walking, Talking and Writing With Place with Kelly Lee Hickey
In light of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, this walkshop will now take place online, where you can walk in your garden, write at home, and connect with others online. Please take special precautions in joining this event. Maintain your physical distance when walking, and give yourself ample space for writing.
“When you give yourself to places, they give you yourself back…. Exploring the world is one the best ways of exploring the mind, and walking travels both terrains.”– Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
Walking and writing have a long history together. Gathering Ground is an invitation to this explore this tradition through three weekends of writing walk-shops. Each week a provocation will be explored through a short writers walk, followed by a generative writing session. This workshop is open to writers and artists of any form or experience interested in developing new ways of seeing, being and writing with/in place.
Kelly Lee Hickey was raised in Darwin, on the sweat soaked wetlands of Larrakia Land, and has made her home in the dusty red country of the Arrernte nation in Mparntwe/Alice Springs since 2008. An artist, producer and creative researcher, her practice explores the intersections between people and places, through collaborative and participatory works. Her work has been published and performed in Australia, China, Finland, New Zealand, Indonesia and Germany.
