Creative Writing Opportunity - ‘Paisley Radicals’
In this year of the 200th anniversary of the Radical Rising 1820, a relatively untold period of strikes and unrest, we commemorate Paisley’s radical past and explore what it means to be a modern-day radical with an exciting new creative project ‘Paisley Radicals – Catalysts for Change’.
We invite you to watch this creative writing workshop from Civil Disobedience, which asks participants to address their own radical behaviours from the past or contemplate their ambitions for the future, and create your own short story, monologue, poem, essay or rap… it’s entirely up to you. All we’re asking is that you send the finished result to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 2nd.
The workshop features interviews from New York writer Peter Michael Marino, Civil Disobedience producer Martin MacLennan and researcher Duncan MacIntosh from the University of the Third Age, participants are asked to develop a creative response to the brief: What Is Your Radical Behaviour?
Civil Disobedience are creatively leading the Paisley Radicals – Catalysts for Change project, supported by the Paisley TH.CARS2 programme, Renfrewshire Council events team and Renfrewshire Leisure in partnership with University of West of Scotland, Star Project and University of the Third Age (Paisley & Glasgow West divisions).
