Event description

Description

Part of Growing Room 2019

Visual art has its own special form of storytelling, a storytelling that exists outside of words. But how does this form of artistic practice influence creative writing? How do these forms converse, join together, and open up new worlds? Join Lindsay Nixon, Arleen Pare, Chantal Gibson with moderator Kristin Cheung as they discuss how artistic mediums outside of writing influence, and are often integral to, the writing process.
