An Paenhuysen, a Berlin-based writer, curator and arts educator, comes to Malta to present the workshop: Creative Writing in Art Criticism.
The workshop will appeal to all kinds of writers, who are either interested or already engaged in writing for the arts, from critics, journalists, curators, artists, students, academics, bloggers and commentators, to professionals responsible for creating content and communications for cultural organisations and institutions.
This is an exciting opportunity for professional and aspiring writers and communicators to expand their skills and networks, under the expert tutelage of An Paenhuysen, who is highly regarded in her field. Through varied teaching and learning techniques, the workshop will provide much-needed skills and knowledge, paving the way for a new generation of professional arts writers and critics in Malta. It’s also an opportunity to simply improve your writing skills and meet others with a shared passion.
Creative Writing in Art Criticism explores the art of writing about art, by combining seriousness with a dose of lightness and experimentation. The workshop begins and ends with an online session, with the main component taking place in Malta, over two days. Participants are expected to attend all online and offline sessions. The workshop will be presented in English, however support will be available for those who prefer to write in Maltese.
The workshop is produced by Nicole Bearman (We Live Here) and Margerita Pulè (Unfinished Art Space), two arts professionals highly accomplished in their fields and passionate about raising levels of knowledge and professionalism in the Maltese arts sector.
