JUL 15

Voices of the Earth

15 - 17 July 2022, Birmingham

A retreat of creative exploration in art and writing

A weekend of hands-on creative exploration, play and reflection seeking renewed perspectives for these complicated and unsettling times. Paying close attention to the world immediately around us, we'll work with visual media and writing to stir up familiar habits of thinking about the planet and humanity, through creating something new.

This weekend is for all, whether or not you are experienced in working creatively in either medium. If you come to this lacking confidence, you'll be supported to find your freedom to explore. If you have skills in art or writing, you'll be encouraged to cross boundaries and take new risks. Throughout, we will stay grounded in our own direct experience as we seek for responses to a changing and endangered world.

With the resources of Woodbrooke's lovely grounds and spacious art room, as well as your tutors' advice, we'll work sometimes in collaboration, sometimes alongside in our own quiet concentration, to shed light from many angles on a timely and earth-centred question: How do we start again from here?
