Text as Art is a hybrid genre situated somewhere between word and image. For five days in September 2020, five writers invited by Pro Artibus Foundation’s artist-in-residence Lena Séraphin will jointly use words to give their impressions of the Market Square in Vaasa. There will be a discussion of the artform and of the group’s experiences of co-writing at the Ostrobothnian Museum café at 15:00-17:00 on Thursday, September 17.
The workgroup will discuss the experiences and observations they have accumulated during the process of using words to collectively visualize the Market Square in Vaasa, and also read out excerpts from what they have written. Attendance is free of charge. The conversation will be in Swedish, Finnish and English. The Ostrobothnian Museum café will be open.
