WRITING & CONCEPTS
PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES - SEASONS 3 & 4

Produced by Jan van Schaik
6:00pm Thursday or 3:00pm Saturdays
Season 3: April 27 - August 3
Season 4: August 10 - November 2

WRITING & CONCEPTS is a public lecture series designed to explore the potential of writing as both a process and an outcome. It aims 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 will alternate 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 3 are, in order of appearance: Spiros Panigirakis, Daniel vo Strumer, Paul Carter, Bryce Ives, Darren Sylvester, Anthony Carew, Carolyn Eskdale, Yhonnie Scarce, Ben Ben Eltham, Natasha Johns-Messenger, Julien Leyre

Speakers for WRITING & CONCEPTS Series 4 are, in order of appearance: Anusha Kenny, Nathan Gray, OSW (Terri Bird, Bianca Hester & Scott Mitchell), Rushdi Anwar, Fayen d’Evie, Van Badham, Mark Feary, Jason Phu, Jamie O’Connell, Erik Jensen, Paola Balla

WRITING & CONCEPTS is proudly supported by the RMIT Design Hub, The RMIT School of Architecture & Design through the SRC Funds, the RMIT School of ArtSpring 1883, and MvS Architects.
