PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES
WRITING & CONCEPTS

Produced by Jan van Schaik
Thursday nights between 5:00pm and 6:30pm

Season 1:  3 March - 19 May
Season 2:  21 July - 3 November

WRITING & CONCEPTS was a public lecture series designed to explore the potential of writing as both a process and an outcome. It aimed to promote writing as a tool of reflection and inquiry and open up the complex relationship between the process of writing and the development of social, political and philosophical questions within contemporary cultural practice.

The lectures alternated between practitioners for whom the written form is their primary professional output and practitioners whose work manifests as exhibitions or events within the domain of contemporary art.

Speakers for WRITING & CONCEPTS Series 1 were, in order of appearance: Leon van Schaik, Hannah Bertram, Robert Nelson, Nikos Pantazopoulos, Kelly Fliedner, Jessie Bullivant, Esther Anatolitis, Susan Jacobs, Phip Murray, Lisa Radford, and Maura Edmond.

Speakers for WRITING & CONCEPTS Series 2 were, in order of appearanceHelen Grogan, Pia Ednie-Brown, Tom Nicholson, Callum Morton, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Helen Johnson, Francis Plagne, Emile Zile, Lou Hubbard, Nella Themelios and Ricarda Bigolin and Nikos Papstergiadis.

WRITING & CONCEPTS was proudly supported by RMIT Design Hub Gallery, The RMIT School of Architecture & Design through the SRC Funds, the RMIT School of Art, and MvS Architects.
