AUDIOGRAFT: ‘Writing with Sound’ Workshop

17 March at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


During Audiograft artists Kate Liston and Tess Denman-Cleaver will lead a series of practical, performative writing activities that draw on poet Gertrude Stein’s ‘cultivated motor automatism’ exercises and musician and teacher François Delsarte’s taxonomy of naturalistic gestures. The workshop will introduce strategies for writing with, for and about sound that focus on the gestures of writing and listening.

This is a FREE workshop for participants aged 18+. As capacity is limited, booking is essential. Please send your name in an email with ‘Writing with Sound Workshop‘ in the subject line to: info@audiograft.co.uk.

Please note: we plan to hold this workshop in our first floor learning space, accessed via stairs only. If this would prevent you from attending please contact us in advance so that we can discuss individual requirements.

Tess Denman-Cleaver’s work spans live performance, performance writing and publication, workshops and installation. Her recent work has been shown at Tate Britain, Hatton Gallery, Turner Contemporary, Tate St Ives, M_HKA Gallery Antwerp, Paul Melon Centre, Audiograft 2018 and Wilkinson Gallery. Tess is currently Artist in Residence at the Sonic Arts Research Unit (Oxford Brookes). 

Kate Liston recently completed a practice-led PhD at Northumbria University titled Link Zone: an exploration of the sensation of knowledge through a practice of art and writing in which she exposes the inherent materiality of knowledge through sensual engagement with matter and grubby handling of ideas.
