Writing a Climate Revolution

Room 101, 5 University Gardens
University of Glasgow
Glasgow, G12 8QH

Join DFA student Amanda Douge for a workshop of performance, research and practice exploring the role of creative writing and radical imagination towards climate solutions.

This pilot workshop will consist of a series of micro performances that seek to disassemble the anthropocenic self manifest in daily life and to open an emotional space for new and revolutionary considerations. It will include discussion of the theoretical underpinnings of the creative presentation, followed by a practical workshop of writing and transmission techniques to foster a shared revolutionary spirit. Please come along, this workshop is designed for all disciplines and backgrounds (not just writers!), and diverse feedback would be warmly welcomed.

Amanda Douge is an actress, writer, theatre director and arts educator. She has presented work internationally in arts festivals, the mainstream media and Conservatoires. Currently a Creative Writing DFA student, her research interests include: climate revolution, the epistemology of performance/research/praxis, political poetry in social transformations, feminist theory and the literary practices of Anne Carson and Hélène Cixous.
