About Voices in the Plural

Listed Under Workshops Events

This free poetry-writing workshop, devised in response to Call Me Human, will be facilitated by Edinburgh-based poet Tanatsei Gambura. Participants are invited to consider the pluriverse of languages available to them and the different worlds opened up by each language. The possibilities and limitations of bilingual or multilingual imaginaries will come into focus, as well as writer W.E.B du Bois’ theory of ‘double-consciousness’. This workshop is suitable for participants who speak more than one language and self-identify as ‘thinking in different voices’. No poetry- writing experience is required.

Access: The workshop will be delivered in English as a majority consideration, not as an attempt to privilege the English language.

Please contact access@takeoneaction.org.uk if you have any questions about access for this event.

This event is taking place at Greyfriars Charteris Centre as part of Take One Action Film Festival 2021.
