The questions themselves is an initiative of ARIAS that aims to create a focused and open space for co-existing writing processes within artistic research, (…) ‘and try to love the questions themselves’ (Rainer Maria Rilke).
Grab your pen, keyboard or pencil and join this space dedicated to those who find focus when writing together, who desire to put a proposal down or experiment with different styles of writing in research. Whether you need to write a chapter for your PhD or post-doc or are inspired to apply for a residency or grant, join along in these collective writing sessions and find the attentive moment to put words to paper.
The idea is simple, come and work on any text you are busy with. Keeping each other company while writing, we will create a great atmosphere of concentration that facilitates the words to flow. Perhaps with some exercises to trigger inspiration, sparing with a fellow writer or conversations with the occasional guest, these sessions are open to everyone who feels writing is better in company.
Each session begins with a short welcoming moment to set up an exchange for those who want it. There will always be time left just to write. Breaks are also very important, so halfway, we suggest a pause moment with coffee, tea and conversations. Save emails for the office, and turn off those notifications. These write-ins are dedicated to the gift of artistic research writing only.
Join at any point during these mornings, no sign-up required.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
