Saturday 19 October 2019 > 1PM-3.30PM


Inspired by the themes of dystopian futures in the current exhibitions on display at Linden New Art, novelist Alice Robinsonjoins us to explore dystopian fiction. The event will start with an exclusive curator-led tour with Juliette Hanson followed by a practical two-hour workshop looking at narrative structure, research, place and character development. Participants will be guided to explore the logistics and poetics involved in creating dystopian futures on the page.
