Scribe: Spill Festival

October 2016
created by Leisa Shelton

Scribe is designed as a live writing project within festival and event contexts in which artist Scribes capture the experience of members of the public to create the democratic document of the festival. It creates a social archive of the events of the festival through the experiences of those that are attending, passing by or participating.

Shelton writes “It seeks to put into question hierarchies of power and enable diverse voices and experiences to be the document for artists, public and future researchers to engage with as a fuller and more layered resonant outcome of the live event.”
