    Fan Fiction Workshop: Reimagining the Future

    March 19 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


    Join members of Babeworld for a workshop exploring fan fiction* as an empowering tool for transformation and re-imagining futures.

    Babeworld will explore the building of new communities and relationships during the creation of fan fiction, to showcase stories that are not usually represented in mainstream media. They will use creative writing techniques to show why it is important to reimagine popular narratives in a way that represents us.

    During the workshop participants will be encouraged to create their own fan fiction, either through creative writing or other forms such as collages, painting and voice recording. Babeworld will give prompts to help with character creation, with a chance at the end to share what you have made and to discuss how your fan fiction better represents us.

    *What is Fan Fiction?
    Fan fiction is fiction created by a fan of, and often including characters, from an already existing piece of fiction. It often exists as writing but has many other forms including visual art, collage and memes. Fan fiction regularly features plotlines which often wouldn’t be seen in traditional mainstream media and represents marginalised communities.

    About Babeworld
    Babeworld seeks to create a more representative art world through the creation of art, fundraising and creating grants, and facilitation of events – for those who are marginalised in the arts. With an emphasis on collaboration and co-creation, Babeworld’s practice focuses on themes of political and societal identity, disability/access, neurodivergence, sex work and race.

    Strong Bonds for a Fragile Planet
    This event was originally curated as part of our Strong Bonds for a Fragile Planet programme, which ran from 24 February to 2 March and brought together artists and curious people through walks, talks, dinners and workshops to consider what we need at a time when the world feels fragile in many ways. We had to postpone this event the first time around due to train strike, but let us know you can make it by booking your free spot .
