Project lead

Lucinda Strahan

Summary

A project bringing together 10 writers of diverse disciplinary and creative backgrounds to explore new methodologies for arts writing and criticism in response to the exhibition On Vulnerability and Doubt at ACCA. 

Following a public call-out, that attracted 60+ applicants, ten writers were selected to participate in a series of workshops, a public readings event and a co-design a digital publication of pieces produced. Doubting Writing/ Writing Doubt built on the success of 2018's Writing in the Expanded FieldField, taking the exhibition themes of doubt and vulnerability as provocations for further exploring Strahan's (2019) notion of the expanding the field of writing. Doubting Writing/ Writing Doubt was a great success, attracting excellent applicants, high public interest, connections with the arts publishing industry, and firmly consolidating the partnership between non/fictionLab and ACCA.
