Fieldwork is excited to be hosting its second edition of Framework: Words on the Land - readings from new work created over the course of a weekend on the land at Fieldwork.
It will be held on Sunday, August 21st at 3pm. Featuring:
Natale Ghent, Katherine Graham, John K. Grande, Helen Humphreys, Jonathan Kaplansky, Andrew Kaufman, Monty Reid, Sandra Ridley, John Steffler and Alissa York.
As most of you know, a collection of three dimensional artwork has been growing at Fieldwork for the past 9 years. Last August we initiated Framework: Words on the Land - an experiment in how land works on the imaginations of writers. It was a hit and we've decided to do it once again.
For a brief 2 day period this August, ten diverse writers will be positioned in front of portals that frame vantage points around the land at Fieldwork. From these vantage points, stories, poems and other literary experiments will be developed.
We expect that Framework will illuminate, for writers and listeners alike, our nuanced and varied experiences with nature. Whatever emerges from this weekend will be, at minimum, imaginative, surprising and full of spontaneity.
We welcome you to join us Sunday afternoon, August 21 at 3pm for readings and discussion with the writers in the wonderful space of our barn loft - located across the road from Fieldwork (15 minutes west of Perth, ON) .
For simplicity's sake, tickets will be sold only online through the Ottawa International Writers Festival website. Space in our barn loft is limited so purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment. Only if there are some remaining tickets on the day of the event will we sell at the door (cash only).
