Featuring: ART WORKS Writer in Residence Connal Lee

Does reading, looking at art, watching movies and engaging with stories make you a more ethically minded person? Are there characters that you would never write about or would struggle to feel empathy for?

ART WORKS 2021 Writer in Residence Connal Lee is seeking interactions from the public around the idea of moral imagination in the creative arts. Join Connal online and undertake an exercise that to build your self-knowledge and generate ideas for your creative practice.

Connal is in the Adelaide City Library every Friday between 10am and 3pm.

ART WORKS is delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide.
