Jonny Woo is joined by his writing mentor Nichola Charalambou from Creative Writes, to lead a creative writing workshop inspired by ‘Another Kind of Life’.

Currently writing his own memoirs, Woo will share his recollections and experiences with workshop participants, encouraging visitors to write freely whilst referencing their own personal histories. The workshop will include writing exercises inspired by images and written material from the exhibition and is suitable for both new and more experienced writers.

The ticket price includes same day entry to the exhibition. Please collect your ticket from the Art Gallery on Level 3 to allow an hour for visiting the exhibition before the workshop begins at 1pm in Frobisher Room 4.
