Co-Writing Club and The Reading Group on Participation, 2013

Co-Writing Club and The Reading Group on Participation were commissioned as part of the Intercourse project. 

Co -Writing Club was an attempt to create fiction works through ongoing exchanges between writers facilitated by Ania Bas and framed as a creative writing class. It was a lesson in letting go and in generosity. The co-writing method has been tested on a larger scale with all I'm not sitting at the front event partcipants. The works created during the event can be viewed below or on issuu.

The Reading Group on Participation created a room for discussion around theoretical texts about socially engaged art, social practices, collaboration and participation. The group also inspired The Walking Reading Group on Participation that took place in London.

Many thanks to Elbow Room and g39 and big thank you to Season Butler for all the inspiration!
