Word Out & Wise Words

The Old Fashioned Cocktail Co

 

THE WORD OUT SHED:
A shed that promotes Word Out and engages people across the Festival. It will be the base for the Rough Cut Zine and you can if you wish run pop in type workshops where adults can create revolting rhymes. This will also be the base for your letter writing installation.

I have scheduled you all for times but the shed is a relaxed space so it won’t mean that you miss all the performances in the main tent. You can take it turns and when its quite the shed can probably look after itself. 

You can all do a bit of everything but inline with your initial expressions of interest: Matthew & Cal will focus on gathering interviews for the zine and our social media; Adrian, Lora and Alex will focus on the development of the zine; Lora, Alice, Alex & Helen will focus on the letter writing installation.
