‘Writing Place: Creative-Critical Conversations’ is a series of six public events organised by the new Centre for Place Writing. In each event, a Manchester Met researcher will be paired with an artist or academic from outside the University to introduce their work and to discuss the relationship between creative and critical approaches to place. Ideas and issues that will be explored during the series include the power and problems of mapping, the representation of post-industrial geographies, and the relationship between writing and music.
‘Writing Place: Creative-Critical Conversations’ will begin on Thursday, 8 November with ‘More than 100 Stories: A Collaboration’. Sarah Butler (novelist and Lecturer in Creative Writing at Manchester Met) and Nicole Mollett (visual artist) will discuss ‘More than 100 Stories’: a commission from the Creative People & Places Network in which they were asked to creatively evaluate 21 projects across England. Join Sarah and Nicole for an in-conversation event discussing the rewards, and challenges, of: collaboration across art forms; working at the intersection of research and creative practice; making work in direct response to specific people, places and events, and much more.
