Apply for the Critical Writing workshop at Sonic Acts Academy 2020

Following the success of previous Critical Writing workshops, a new edition will take place during Sonic Acts Academy, from 21 to 23 February 2020. The workshop is hosted by Arie Altena and Katía Truijen, as well as guests from different journalistic fields.

Focusing on specific aspects of writing as a craft (language, style and focus) and how to shape the argument or perspective of a piece, participants will convene in commissioning meetings, and receive one-to-one feedback on all work produced during the festival. The workshop focuses on developing writing skills, and all writers who complete text will have their pieces published on the Sonic Acts blog. The Critical Writing workshop this year will focus on the different critical modes that can be used to write about, describe and discuss art, theory, sound and music while thinking about how to package ideas. Participants will cover the conference, performances and other events during the festival, and have a chance to interview artists and theorists. Enrolment The workshop is intended for a small group of emerging international bloggers, journalists, critics and writers active or interested in the field of interdisciplinary arts (media arts, film, visual arts and performance). Applicants are asked to submit a short motivation and CV to workshop[at]sonicacts[dot]com. The deadline for applications is 20 January 2020. For an impression of previous written Critical Writing results, check out the Sonic Acts blog. Fee Participants pay a €60 contribution. Lunch will be provided. This workshop is a co-production of Sonic Acts & Paradiso and part of Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
