Save Event: Nothing From Nothing

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Nothing From Nothing is a fleeting, collaborative residency in Margate that will examine editing as a creative process, inspired by the extensive revisions, suggestions and edits made by Ezra Pound to T.S. Eliot’s manuscript of The Waste Land.


Join us on Saturday 21st, when the process and outcomes of the residency will be shared, with the artists deciding on the style of this presentation. This will be followed by a hosted open format discussion for the public and invited guests - addressing the responses of the artists toThe Waste Land, creative collaboration, and the arts in Margate. 

The residency will see ten artists coming together in Margate, the area where Eliot himself found inspiration for the seminal poem. Working in pairs, the artists will take a section of The Waste Land as a starting point, and over two days respond through collaborative practice.

Documentation from the residency will be on display at LIMBO on Sunday 22nd April, 12.00 - 16.00.

This is a free public event, but please register for your ticket here. There will be a cheap cash only bar.

Residency artists:
Alex Noble, Susan Fletcher, Mas Weeb, Rebecca Truscott-Elves, Mai Spring, Sophie Dixon, Sara Trillo, Maxence Effantin, Claire Orme, Dan Scott
