The Creation Day

For writers, artists, theatre and film makers

Venue: The Writers’ Block

Workshop led by writer Annamaria Murphy and artist and designer Myridden Pharo.

Using artifacts from Bill Mitchell’s Attic of Visions and Wild Imaginings as starting points, we will be exploring writing, stories and the collaging of ideas.
