20 – 22 July, 2022
Time: 10.00 – 16.00

Venue: Makers Space, Centre for Narrative Practice

A risograph workshop focusing on the beautiful coincidences that happen while printing and making an artist book. The participants are invited for a dive in the world of risograph and bookmaking. The process starts from the very beginning with an explanation of the risograph machine, it’s history and background to a few hours of experimentation. Later on, the workshop will focus on the matter of the artist publication and the book as an object, where artists use the form of a book as its main material to produce a new work, with images, drawings, text and hopefully a lot of unintentional, though interesting encounters.

The workshop is hosted by An Onghena from, together with Freya Clijmans they run a creative studio based in Antwerp. They focus on risograph printing and graphic design with a passion for the tactile feeling of paper and dazzling colour combinations.

Saturday, 23 July
Time: 10.30 – 13.00

Venue: Oaza, Centre for Narrative Practice

The Speculative Tourism workshop is a collaborative experiment aimed at expanding our political imagination. Together we will learn methodologies from the realms of science fiction, policy planning, and speculative design. We will practice thinking in terms of plural “futures” rather than a single monolithic “future”. Led by the Speculative Tourism team, each participant will use those methods to create their own unexpected vision for the history of the future.

30 July
Time: 11.00 – 16.00

Venue: Main Building, Centre for Narrative Practice

In this workshop, Anna shares her knowledge of mobile audio recording, voice techniques, hosting styles, as well as basic audio editing methods. The participants will capture audio material, investigate their own voice and modulations in different sound textures, conduct short interviews, and edit the material on an open-source audio software.
Of course, there will be room for conversations about voices, ad hoc speaking, and the unfinished nature of interviews and radio conversations. Which voices and which arrangements provoke and challenge listening habits? How to be speaking, wondering, assembling voices?
