Art Theory &
Writing Book Group
Circus Sideshow presents:
Art Theory and Writing Book Group
This group was formed as a way of bringing young creative people together in the Highlands to discuss art theory texts and explore the medium of art writing.
Launch Event: 6 November 2020
This event was an online meet up to discuss the book Funny Weather: Art in an Emergency by Olivia Laing.
Supported through a Creative in Your Community award from the Highland Youth Arts Hub and there was funding to purchase the book for attendees. This event was targeted specifically for those living in the Scottish Highlands.
"I formed this book group as a way of bringing creative people together in the Highlands to discuss art theory texts and explore the medium of art writing. So far we have looked at different texts by authors such as Kathy Acker, John Berger, Erving Goffman and Judith Halberstam." - Hester Grant, 2021
