Join the IPRC for an evening of generative writing in response to visual art at Carnation Contemporary & Well Well Projects.

What is Ekphrastic writing? Ekphrasis refers to written work that responds to visual art— literally “description” in Greek, it is characterized by description of art, but more broadly can refer to any piece of writing that engages with art on the level of narrative, reflection, image, or associative logic.

Writing materials, clipboards, and prompts for generative writing will be provided, beginners welcome.

Capacity: 15
