Emerging Writers’ Festival Programme Launch: Digital Nostalgia

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
2 June 2020
Author / Presenters: 
Ruby-Rose Pivet-Marsh, Millie Baylis, Alistair Baldwin, Bridget Caldwell-Bright, Jamie Marina Lau, and Panda Wong

We often speak of the internet as the Bad Place, but it’s also vital for many people to access resources and services, entertainment and community – perhaps now more so than ever. From discussion forums and MSN crushes to TikTok choreographies and pandemic meetings and parties on Zoom, online spaces continue to offer a gathering place for when we can’t be physically together. 

To celebrate the launch of the Emerging Writers’ Festival’s exciting – and fully digital – 2020 program, four festival artists will reflect on the times they found (or failed to find!) connection, chaos and care online. 

Hosted by the Emerging Writers’ Festival’s artistic director Ruby-Rose Pivet-Marsh and program coordinator Millie Baylis, featuring Festival artists Alistair Baldwin, Bridget Caldwell-Bright, Jamie Marina Lau and Panda Wong.

Presented in partnership with the Emerging Writers’ Festival, which will run from 16–23 June.
