Automatic Writing & The Cut Up Technique | Elle Short

Turn and Face the Strange | Lewis Buxton

I Love You to the Moon and Back | Lucy Sheerman

More about the sessions...

Elle Short is a visual and sonic artist working across intersections of video, sculpture, painting, writing and performance, and has recently completed shooting two short science fiction films. The Cut Up Technique is a series of exercises that can be applied to any form of output.

Lewis Buxton is a writer and theatre maker. Lewis encourages us to use new words and forms of language in place of the phrases and sayings that we naturally lean on in creative writing.

Lucy Sheerman runs the Creative Writing Centre at the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge where she also teaches. Lucy talks us through the process of a prospective space flight to prompt creative writing, modelling how you can use this technique in the classroom.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
