Tangles of hair and the music of life will surround the final Memory Makes Us event for 2014. Our memories bid their farewell in Perth for the Disrupted Festival of Ideas.
Kate Fielding will be writing to the theme of Haircut
Describe your favourite salon. What was your worst hairdressing experience? And what was your best? Did you ever cut, colour or style someone’s hair? How did it feel?
Maxine Beneba Clarke will be writing to the theme of Harmony and Rhythm
Music infuses our lives and the rhythm of life often creates recurring motifs: birth cycles, death cycles, seasonal cycles. Harmony may lead to thoughts of forgiveness and reconciliation, interpersonal and otherwise.
Memory Makes Us is a live writing event that challenges two writers to create a new work using as their inspiration collected memories from the general public. You can watch the work unfold and deliver your memories to the author in person or contribute and check in via the web site.
On the web, your memories can take the form of text, images, or video. If you join the authors live at the State Library of Western Australia, you can scribble or type your memories and deliver them by hand. Then keep an eye on the work in progress. Your memories may be picked up by the authors and used to spur their creative work.
