Join Rashida Murphy for a workshop that explores why writing and reading is never neutral. Participants will interrogate colonial practices and discuss how we can disrupt power imbalances by consciously choosing a decolonising art practice. Participants will be asked to read a couple of short texts prior to the workshop, which will be provided. Come prepared to engage in the discussion and write. This workshop is open to all writers.
