Creative Writing Workshop

This creative writing workshop from Civil Disobedience asks participants to address their own radical behaviours from the past or contemplate their ambitions for the future.

Featuring interviews from New York writer Peter Michael Marino, Civil Disobedience producer Martin MacLennan and researcher Duncan MacIntosh from the University of the Third Age, participants are asked to develop a creative response to the brief: What Is Your Radical Behaviour?

Short story, monologue, poem, essay or rap… it’s entirely up to you. All we’re asking is that you send the finished result to barry@wearecivildisobedience.com by October 2nd.

Civil Disobedience are creatively leading the Paisley Radicals – Catalysts for Change project, supported by the Paisley TH.CARS2 programme, Renfrewshire Council events team and Renfrewshire Leisure in partnership with University of West of Scotland, Star Project and University of the Third Age (Paisley & Glasgow West divisions).

Since early 2020, artists from Civil Disobedience have been working with volunteers from Paisley and wider community to explore Paisley and Renfrewshire’s role in the Radical War through performance and writing workshops.

Originally designed to culminate in an outdoor theatre performance in Paisley’s town centre in June 2020, the project is now looking at creative ways to profile this important heritage digitally over the coming months in collaboration with community groups.
