Writing Toolkit

This Writing toolkit was developed as part of the larger Art, Writing, Work project in collaboration with Newcastle University, Art Monthly, Nairobi Contemporary and British Institute in Eastern Africa.

Interested parties attended the KLA ART Labs Starter Kits at32° East in April to be introduced to the KLA ART Labs program and develop a writing toolkit to serve as a resource for the duration of the Labs and beyond.

During the Art Writers week, the program focused on the craft of writing about the arts and developing content, argument, and a compelling voice in art writing.

In this Artist’s week, the program focused on the ways artists can effectively write about what they do and why they do it.

We have put together a writing toolkit which is a collection of information and knowledge gained from the program; including documents, guidelines, videos and audio from our workshop participants and facilitators that will be a useful guide to artists everywhere.
