Leeds Lit Fest presents

Inspiring the City is supported by Leeds Inspired part of Leeds City Council.

Come and explore poetry and film in an accessible creative workshop run by artist-filmmaker Joanna Byrne. We will experiment with words, sound, still and moving images, creating handmade analogue film, poetry and spoken word/performance. You will be able to explore: writing poetry – using cut-up-collage and the haiku as starting points; making 16mm film and 35mm slides – drawing, writing, painting, scratching onto film; spoken word and sound performance, including 16mm optical sound. The workshop will end with a screening and recital of all work made.

The workshop is open access (stay for as long as you’d like) and is suitable for ages 6+. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Different abilities can be supported, all languages welcomed and collaboration with others is encouraged!

Pavilion is at 42 New Briggate, Leeds, LS1 6NU.

Supported by Pavilion and the Hyde Park Picture House.
