Dragon Tree Writing Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

13 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

In this workshop participants will creatively explore Wollongong Botanic Garden’s spectacular Dragon Tree. Working from the mythologies and origin stories of the Dragon Tree, Karen Cummings will take participants through exercises using sound, writing and drawing to respond to the tree and its stories, in embodied and creative ways.

Karen Cummings is a SCWC/Wollongong Botanic Garden Writer in Residence, and is a performer with over 30 years experience in opera, music theatre and the performance of song. She has an abiding interest in the many ways the voice can colour words and the relationship of the sounds of words and the human voice. She is currently a lecturer in voice at Wollongong university and the Conservatorium of music (Sydney). She has a particular interest in the ways that voice and words can empower communities who are the voices we most need to hear from.

This workshop presented in partnership between the South Coast Writers Centre and Wollongong Botanic Garden.
