As part of the Musictown Festival 2019 Artist and filmmaker Anne Maree Barry invites participants to explore a variety of processes including storytelling, writing, art and film making. The workshop will begin with a silent walk through the Music Library, which will be the inspiration for experimental writing and reading, leading to a visual documentation of the experience. The participants will write about their own experiences through choosing a musical book/cd in a stream of consciousness writing style that the artist explores in her own work. Participants will share their individual pieces, generating discussion on how to visually document their written words.
Anne Maree Barry makes site-specific film works that address connections between memory and loss, geography, history and architecture. The result being creative non-fiction works that explore Barry’s sense of self and space, within a community. Anne Maree’s work features in ‘The Last Great Album of the Decade’ at The LAB Gallery.
