One Applination under a Groove
8pm Friday 31 August to 8am Saturday 1 September 2012
Grand Union, in conjunction with Hooky Street Press and BAZ productions, will be hosting a 12 hour application writing all-nighter / ‘extreme writing event’.*
One Applination under a Groove invites artists, writers and whoever wanders in from local nightclubs by mistake, to write all night in response to a series of quick-fire application writing challenges, tasks and briefs set by art world ‘think-tank’ BAZ.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part. Places are limited to 100.
Participants should bring a laptop if they have one, sleeping bag and biro. Energy focused beverages and food will be available throughout the night. A FREE fry-up will also be provided as reward for the 12 hours of fictitious – and potentially quite pointless – proposal writing.
Writing produced during the event will be collated into a print on demand publication which all participants will receive a FREE copy of.
One Applination under a Groove is part of the Hooky Street Press project – a new art-writing initiative co-ordinated by Chris Poolman exploring the role, use and value of humour in art-writing.
BAZ are an art-world ‘think-tank’ based at Grand Union.
