Ways of Looking is an interactive workshop where participants encounter a work of art, and craft a written response. Nancy Langham-Hooper, an art historian and writer, will encourage participants to think and write visually, using several major artworks from the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Victoria as inspiration. Learn how art historians look at the formal aspects of art, as well as how an artist’s biography and cultural context can enhance and deepen any written depiction of an artwork, in both fiction and nonfiction.
Presented in partnership with Writers Victoria and supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program.
Please note: the meeting point will be inside the NGV foyer, next to the water wall. An EWF staff member will be there to greet you, wearing a light pink Emerging Writers’ Festival t-shirt and a lanyard.
Please bring writing materials with you – you will need them!
