The News Agents

[Repeated from Saturday 2.30pm.] Experiments in news and arts with Jude Cowan Montague. This week: Drawing the Curtains. Koestler Trust judges meet to discuss the entries for the Koestler Awards 2018 drawing prize. This year the themed category is 'connections'. Following on from judging day we look at issues of drawing from real life stories as well as the imagination, wondering how drawing can process what happens to us in and out of our perceived environment and create new experiences. Reflecting on practising this particular art in and out of prison. For more information see thenewsagents.blogspot.com.
