Since September, I have been running weekly walking and writing workshops around Spike Island, a real/unreal island in the middle of Bristol. Mapping walk over walk and working in collaboration with each participant, this project has been gathering itself under the name Spike Archipelago.
The project culminates today at Spike Island, the gallery, with a special and free workshop for writers and artists who work with text. After a final exploration of this strange slip of land, participants will work together and with the project’s archive to compose new work which can then be turned into miniature viewfinders, little guides for looking, for sharing our point of view.
This project also marks the beginning of the end of my residency at Spike Island and is supported by Arts Council England.
Come sightseeing with me, one last time.
