Writer, sound artist and educator Belinda Zhawi leads a creative writing workshop for people interested in mining memories and family histories to make sense of the present, excavating the past to imagine possible futures. 

Inspired by Kudzanai-Violet Hwami’s exhibition at Gasworks, (15,952km) via Trans-Sahara Hwy N1, workshop participants will be encouraged to respond to personal photographs and sound in order to explore those intangible parts of our lives that live on through us. 

This event is free to attend, no booking required. Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.



Belinda Zhawi is a Zimbabwean born writer, sound artist and educator based in London. Her work explores Afro-diasporic research and narratives, looking at how art and education can be used as intersectional tools. She was the ICA's Associate Poet in 2016/17, and she is currently the Serpentine’s Schools Artist-in-Residence. Zhawi co-founded the BORN::FREE literary arts platform. She is the author of Small Inheritances (ignitionpress, 2018).


This event accompanies Kudzanai-Violet Hwami's exhibition (15,952km) via Trans-Sahara Hwy N1 at Gasworks, which continues until 15 December.
