How to Write About Your Artwork @ Garter Lane Arts Centre

  • Garter Lane Arts Centre 22 O'Connell Street Waterford, County Waterford, X91 PWE1 Ireland (map)

Writing about your work is an essential element of your art practice. Covering such topics as proposals, funding applications and statements for press and marketing purposes, this session will equip participants with a core text to work from, develop and adapt in the future.

Over the course of the day, we will work interactively to produce texts that address the concepts, approaches and methodologies particular to your work. In addition to concise, accessible language, we will also consider writing as a dynamic and reflective tool, exploring the more expansive, generative ways in which writing can meld with an arts practice, operating within or alongside it.

In discussing how participants might develop a long term relationship with writing that will serve their practice and its shifting demands as it develops over time, we will also cover various opportunities regarding the production of text in relation to an artwork or exhibition.
