1)  STRANGER: NEIGHBOUR is a live art writing project focused around  three days of inspirational, playful writing workshops at William Morris Gallery for an inter-generational and culturally-diverse group of 16 Waltham Forest residents. It is led and supported by writers Jacob Sam-La Rose and Nichola Charalambou,(see “Hanging Words Out To Dry” 7th November 2013) in collaboration with artists Bobby Lloyd and Sally Labern from the drawing shed. Participants are invited to write their own story, poem or idea; work individually and in a group; use pen and paper, Twitter and old fashioned typewriters(!) stationed in a Typing Pool at Winns Gallery; and explore the extraordinary spaces of William Morris Gallery, Lloyd Park, and beyond in E17. No previous writing experience is necessary.£25.
