Voicing Silence – Participants call out - Poets and Writers, online, 19 June 2020, free entry - Visit now

Voicing Silence is an artistic response aiming to understand how the public feels about the sixth global mass extinction we are experiencing today. It questions how we ought to represent it, how to make sense of it and what new languages are needed to express and address it.

Part of a wider project, Thinking Through Extinction, and working in partnership with Manchester Museum and University of Leeds, artist Laurence Payot and a team of artists are inviting participants to collaborate and contribute to a video piece that will be presented online and at Manchester Museum late 2020/early 2021.

There are two free creative writing workshops for writers and poets to choose from, on Friday 19 June, 2-4pm or 6-8pm. Open to all, no previous experience required. Places are limited and you must register in advance – click on “Find Out More” for details.
