Wed 17 – Sat 20 August, all day
*Stet |stɛt| [imperative verb]: let it stand; an instruction on a printed proof to indicate that a marked alteration should be ignored; a performative writing retreat on commemoration and constructive forgetting.
Over four days, seven artists will tap our global, national and collective histories as a vehicle to explore the politics and practice of performative writing. We’ll look at history as an act of agency; (un)making the past, we’ll overwrite, redact, erase, edit, highlight, conserve.
On 17 August we’ll emerge with outcomes, artifacts, residues and offcuts in cutting room at Forest Fringe’s home at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall.
