British Academy fund walking workshop with Lavinia Brydon

Following her participation in the UK-South Africa Knowledge Frontiers Symposium earlier this year, Dr Lavinia Brydon, Lecturer in the Department of Film, has co-organised a walking workshop to take place later this month in Tshwane, South Africa.

Seed funded by the British Academy, Lavinia is working with colleagues from the University of Pretoria and University of the West of England Bristol as well as two community partners to explore how arts-based approaches can creatively re-imagine socio-urban space in the South African city.

The workshop is structured as a walking and writing tour of Tshwane, with participants invited to explore the relationship between stories, storytelling and public space. This includes examining literature and poetry about – and performed within – urban architecture. It will also examine how these artistic practices and outputs sit alongside other community-based artwork.
