Artists’ and Writers’ Talks
This summer Bridgepoint Rye will host ‘Conversations Across Place’ – a writers’ and artists’ workshop from the 1st to the 6th of July. The project will bring seven established and emerging artists and writers from the United Kingdom, South Africa, United States, Germany, and Bangladesh/India into meaningful collaboration with each other and the landscape.
‘Conversations’ hopes to explore the generative possibilities of this celebrated historic location in East Sussex, but also give participants unfamiliar with the region a unique experience situated in the landscape and town of Rye. Exploring contact points of their own work and biographies with this new environment, the participants will be encouraged to reflect on the ‘fictioning of place’ and ‘production of space’.
During the course of the week, Bridgepoint Rye and ‘Conversations’ welcome the public to join in on a series of conversations with the artists.
