Anne WALLACE 'Freshman' 2001 | oil on canvas | Private collection, Sydney

Poets on Paintings

Fancy yourself as a poet, but unsure where to start? Cue the ekphrastic poem! Art and poetry combine in QUT Literary Salon's intimate workshop, where you will write and read a poem exploring an artwork of your choice featured in the exhibition Anne Wallace: Strange Ways. Be guided through the process of interpretation, analysis, and presentation of your poetry piece as you draw on the tense and mysterious narratives of Wallace's works.

Suitable for ages from 16 years +. This program is part of QUT O-week.
