Join poet, scholar and activist Shelagh Patterson and theater practitioner Christine Giancatarino as they turn a house into a collaborative essay about how to prepare for radical change. The presenters and participants will write the essay through found-object collage, exercises with the body, and response writing. What does it mean to root writing as physical action and how does this radical approach redefine what it means to exist in space? The Writing On It All project unfolds through a series of discrete sessions in which artists, writers, and interested members of the public will write on the interior of an out-of-use house. By using the house as a surface for writing, Writing On It All foregrounds the material nature of writing; working in a group underscores its social character.
