Trading Words 2015

24 Mar 2015
What part does creativity play in Ireland?

New arts project set up by Creative Writing MA students in the School of English asks what part creativity plays in Ireland, and seeks participation and submissions from UCC students

Trading Words is a project which is investigating the relationship between creative writing and visual art. Under the auspices of the UCC MA in creative Writing, four students are co-ordinating an event on May 10th at Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre, and an exhibition of artworks and written responses.

To participate, check the blog at where a selection of visual artworks and creative writing texts are posted. You can respond to either (or both) and send in your submissions for the exhibition, which will run during May in The Coach House Gallery.

Trading Words will culminate in an informal workshop day with lunch on May 10th, where artists and writers will get together to discuss their experiences and create new work.

Attendance at the Trading Words event is free, and places are limited to 50. To book, email
