Short Abstract:

Join this ethnograpoetic aeroplane assembly in the fresh air and engage in collective reading aloud, creative writing and paper aeroplane making. The process shall be documented in a collage illustrating flight paths to the conference, embodied and imagined.

Long Abstract

You shall assemble outside on the grass, listen to sounds of the sky, then collectively perform a polyphonic reading of a curated collection of writings exploring ideas of migration and flight.

In a linked creative writing workshop, you shall compose a new micro text. Reassembled, you shall read the new texts aloud, fold each one into a paper aeroplane and let it fly.

After the event, images and audio will be compiled into a collaborative ethnograpoetic collage exploring the myriad flight paths to the conference, both embodied and imagined.
