Event Sensory Waste

Sensory Waste

A Speculative Writing Workshop

14 May 2022
10am–12pm

Join artist collective Make or Break for an experimental storytelling workshop, where you will write, think, and share ideas from non-human perspectives.

Through their participatory installation Institutional Waste #2 in An Alternative Economics, Make or Break invite speculation, thinking together, research, conversation, and hands-on making to dig into questions of sustainability and sustainment as we face an uncertain future.

This workshop will treat their artwork as a point of departure to explore the experimental storytelling process. No previous creative writing experience is necessary. This workshop is aimed at adults, but teenagers with an interest in writing are also welcome.

This workshop is presented in conjunction with An Alternative Economics, an exhibition which brings together a group of Australian and international artists who each use their artmaking to explore and expand on the creation of value. Guided by the idea of the circular economy and its compelling counter-narrative to the untenable model of eternal growth, each work in this exhibition offers a provocation to make us reconsider what is ‘counted’ in our society and why.
