A Play Class: Unlearning for Freedom 1
Wednesday 3 March 2021
The Ignorant Art School, Sit-in Curriculum #1
The first of two script writing workshops facilitated by playwright and community theatre director John McCann, informed by An A-Z of Dundonian Dissent co-authored by artist Ruth Ewan, storyteller Erin Farley and historian Siobhan Tolland. The material generated from these workshops will contribute to the development of an audio drama to be shared at a later date.
A second workshop, Unlearning for Freedom #2, will take place on Wed 17 March, 6.00 – 7.30pm. Participants are welcome for either or both of the workshops.
This event forms part of The Ignorant Art School, Sit-in Curriculum #1.
