My role as an In Between writer was to respond to the three other writing residencies both creatively and critically. It’s been a fascinating journey, which started with the idea that writers can play a real role as thinkers, provocateurs, and questioners, and a desire to find more creative ways to talk about participatory projects – their impact and their issues.
I ended up writing two pieces, both called I’ll Meet You On The Bridge, which you can download from here:
The story is my attempt to find a creative fictional response to the rich conversation and debate that surrounded Aoife’s, Yemisi’s and Joe’s residencies. The ‘sort of essay’ is a thinking piece where I’ve used texts from all four of the In Between writers (myself included) to help structure and articulate the key themes and issues that arose throughout the project.
Please download the texts, have a read, and let me know what you think.
