Creators Workshop – Satwa Stories: Poetic exploration through documentary techniques

23 November 2021 @ 6.00 pm - 9.00 pm

Free but preregister

Filmmakers Mahmoud Kaabour and Denise Holloway present an ‘alternative storytelling’ session on how to present documentary research as spoken word; it’s an update of Satwa Stories, a critically-acclaimed spoken word piece / photo-novella work documenting the fading gems and iconic characters of the eponymous neighbourhood.

This workshop will explore the creative possibilities of using poetry to present documentary research, specifically focusing on themes of fact-finding, wordplay, censorship, & image-making. Participants (aged 16+) are encouraged to select five personal images or videos that center on a particular theme, location, or character.

An Off the Stage event, sponsored by Mubadala. It’s in-person rather than online, too.
