Portrait Prize Creative Writing Workshop

03 August 2019

Summary of activity

Immerse yourself in our wonderful Portrait Prize exhibition and use the art on display to inspire some creative writing. Portraits are a window into the human condition. As the overall theme for this project is loneliness, we feel there will be plenty of thought-provoking art on show.

This free and informal session, led by published writer Louise Palfreyman, is open to everyone and is designed to provide a few hours' escape from the isolation or stresses of everyday life. There is no pressure to have a fully formed masterpiece by the end - it’s all about flexing your creative grey matter, meeting fellow art and literature lovers, and enjoying some productive creative mindfulness.

Free, drop-in session

Please contact the Gallery to book your free place by calling 0121 236 4353 or e-mailing rbsagallery@rbsa.org.uk.


2 - 5pm, Meet on the ground floor of the RBSA Gallery.
