Art Socials

Inspired by Durham University's extensive archive, participants will explore the potential power of using both words and image together before developing their own creative outcomes. This workshop will enfuse visual poetry with image making, emphasising the impact of words within art. All you need to bring is your pencil case and your own voice.
