Words & Non-Words
Wittgenstein's view that ‘Whereof we cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent’ is confounded by the articulacy of multiple creative languages. This day explores how different registers of ‘speaking’ are used by eminent creators of art, architecture, design, writing, performance and film and how your experience and viewpoint maps onto theirs through active particpation in discussion. There will also be a performance writing workshop on the day
