Hooky Street Press writing talk # 1 | Eastside Projects, 4 July

Hooky Street Press writing talk # 1: Dr Paul McDonald
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, B9 4AR
Wednesday 4 July, 6.30–8pm

Dr Paul McDonald, course leader for creative and professional writing at Wolverhampton University, will explore how classic theories of humour can be made relevant to writers.

Hooky Street Press is a new art-writing project co-ordinated by Chris Poolman. The project brings together artists, writers, academics and comedians in developing a model of art-writing that draws upon methodologies from comical writing genres outside of art.

The project includes talks, a symposium, conference and the inaugural Art-World Pun Off Championships. These events are designed to provide a framework for the creation of an art-writing group. This will hopefully attract writers from different disciplines outside of art interested in the wider implications of the project.

There is no Script for This
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, B9 4AR
Wednesday 27 June, 6.30–8pm

Entrance: £4 / £2 / Free to Extra Special People

What do people do when they leave art school? How do you begin to develop a career in the visual arts? How long does it take to achieve momentum and then escape velocity? And then how do you maintain it? Drawing from the ESP network of artists, writers, curators and designers this informal event will give students, recent graduates and emerging practitioners a chance to quiz people at different stages of their careers as they talk about highs, lows and pivotal moments during their first years out of art school.

Including presentations from An Endless Supply (design studio) Beth Bramich (curator and Eastside Projects (EP) Distribution assistant), Ruth Claxton (artist and EP Director), Bethan Lewis (artist, educator and EP Operation Assistant), Joanne Masding (artist and Director of The Lombard Method), Gavin Wade (artist-curator and EP Director), Joe Welden (artist, musician and EP Production Assistant) and more.
