One of the most supportive things we can do for artists, along with making sure they have resources to create, is to talk about their work. Critique is not all about shade and sass, it’s about using your instincts, experiences and insights to give artists’ ideas a life beyond the stage or page. Critical response is a vital part of the arts ecosystem and here at Outburst we love to see you getting excited about the ideas that artists encourage us to explore.
In a special festival Outburst Salon, we invite you to join us for a masterclass with two experienced arts writers and critics, Liliana Viola and Seçil Epik, who will share some of their thoughts around queer art criticism and lead a group discussion on how we might do that at Outburst. You will be provided with a free ticket to one festival event that you will be invited to review. All reviews will be published following the festival.
Tickets are free but spaces are strictly limited to keep the group intimate, so registration is essential.
If you would like to be an Outburst critic and attend the Salon, please email email@example.com before Friday 3rd November.
You can also come along to just listen and chat, reviewing is not compulsory!
