As researchers, writers and creative practitioners why do we choose to make work in the aftermath of atrocity? Is there a potential for the creative process and its artefacts to enable human connection when it is all but lost or destroyed? How do we engage with the issue of ethics in researching, writing and making post-atrocity artefacts from the remnants of dark periods in history?
The launch party of The Creative Stance, a collection of essays by important practitioners celebrating the principles essential to creative success, is to be held at Koenig Bookshop on Charing Cross Road.
