16:30 – 19:30, Tuesday, 26 November 2019
Event location: Computer Room 1, Qatar National Library
Based on the ‘writing’ process of Naho Matsuda’s artwork EVERY THING EVERY TIME in this workshop we will explore the playful writing tools that poets, song writers, authors and artists use as methods to create new work or to fuel their imagination.
In this workshop you will learn about data as a language, how data is collected, ‘read’ and how it is translated into different forms and contexts. As well as creating their own poems and stories participants are invited to participate in creating a data-base of descriptions of their city.
This event is suitable for an audience over 18 years old.
