The Verbal Arts Centre has teamed up with Belfast Exposed to offer a unique shared reading experience as part of Late Night Art on Thursday, 1st October.
The main aims of the Reading Room project are to promote engagement with literature which in turn will enhance the social well-being of the city by fostering a love of reading, to encourage social interaction between people who might otherwise never meet, and to provide participants with an opportunity to participate, reflect, imagine and add to the narrative.
This one-off, special Reading Rooms event reflects the themes of Paul Gaffney’s work, which will be on show in Belfast Exposed from 4th September - 17th October, in an ever changing exhibition contemplating immersion in the landscape, forests, moonlight, the nocturnal and dreamscape.
Sessions will begin with a short introduction to the exhibition, then the Reading Room will take place. Participants will then be free to revisit Gaffney’s work, seeing the pieces with new eyes.
The event is free and open to all, but advance registration is advised. Please contact Ciara at Belfast Exposed for further information or to book your place - t: 028 9023 0965 e: firstname.lastname@example.org
