Write Wild for HOU: Schedule

Session 1

WRITE RAW: BREAKING THE BONDS OF SELF-CENSORSHIP
PATRICIA CORAL

We'll start the day with an exploration of divergent thinking. Curiosity and rule-bending will lead our way towards more freedom and authenticity in our work.


Session 2

WRECK THAT RUT: COLLABORATION AS A CREATIVE TOOL
TAYYBA MAYA KANWAL

Allow new ideas to surface, and your current creations to evolve—let your mind encounter an unexpected question from a stranger, respond to a partner’s scribble, perhaps hear an old thought in a new voice.


Session 3

A STAMP, A SCROLL, A SIGNATURE: (RE)IMAGINING YOUR WORK THROUGH PURPOSEFUL RESTRICTION
LAYLA AL-BEDAWI

In our final session, we'll explore how your work transforms when you think of it in new physical contexts, and come full circle as we discover how some restrictions, when employed in creative ways, can be freeing.
