About this Event

The Muted Minds sessions are open to anyone, and everyone interested in co-creating poems driven by the documentation of personal and collective narratives of the present

Cal. Are not the object and the word the same?
A Dialogue between Caliban and Ariel, John Fuller

In Fuller’s dialogue, Caliban engages in a discussion with Ariel, exploring themes such as the relationship between the word and the object. Notably, the dialogue between Caliban and Ariel leans more towards the significance of the 'word' rather than the 'object' as this fulfils the intended purpose of the work. The present series of sessions will focus on the exploration of ‘object-s’ through words, guided by the idea that “any rule may be broken”.

The Muted Minds therapeutic poetry series invite participants to delve into an exchange of words, punctuation marks, and experiences thereby co-creating a poem alongside others. “Docupoetry”, or else documentary poetry, is a form of socially engaged poetry that combines non-literary forms of writing with personal observations, and it is based upon the universal character of language.

Grounded in the universality of language and the use of the poetic, the sessions aim to provide a collective experience that captures the essence of “Docupoetry” facilitating an exploration of the interplay between words and personal encounters that can offer a ‘healing’ outcome. The universality of language, shared inclusively amongst the participants, lays the groundwork for the therapeutic essence of the process.

Participants are not required to prepare or bring anything as all materials will be provided. There is also no requirement for familiarity with creative writing, as no prior experience is necessary. The sessions are guided and stand-alone, allowing everyone to drop in and out of the circle depending on their availability.

You will only need to bring yourself and an open mind.
