Parasol unit Workshop: A Ballad of Transformation

Move through time with poet and visual artist Ella Frears

Poet Ella Frears will lead a workshop in response to the animated films and drawings of French artist Christine Rebet. During this three-hour session, participants will look at texts by writers who deal with similar themes of history and trickery as well as personal, political and environmental traumas. Drawing on individual and collective histories create new poems that shift and transform, that resist stillness and refuse to be quiet.

Venue: Parasol unit, London

10.30am – 1.30pm. £8/£6 concessions. 

Suitable for 16+. Writers of all levels and styles welcome – no prior experience with poetry necessary.

Please book via the Parasol Unit website.
