CantmuseumlogoJanuary – April 2016: Armchair Artist

The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge, Canterbury

My residency involved responsive writing using the museum collections, based on the concept of bricolage, to create a DIY museum of words.

View posts in my residency blog to find out more:

Grave games & serious play - gaming, grave goods and Star Wars figures
Drama in the dolls' house - sagas and secrets playing out in miniature
Secret messages & hidden text - tracing meaning in found-text fragments
Upstart crow - on plumage and borrowed colour
Shrines, illusions and heterotopias - spaces in spaces
Have writing exercises, will exercise writers - a guerrilla farewell

Previous writing residencies, performances and exhibitions include paper boats and sunken text at The Old Lookout Gallery, Broadstairs; cut-ups and knitted words at the Whitstable Oyster Festival; and microfictions at Lounge on the Farm music festival.
