The visual Ethiopian artist Tamrat Gezahagne will be working  in Jiwar until the 12th of June. Once again, the collaboration with Africa Centre has given us a fantastic opportunity to meet other artistic realities and viewpoints. After the Ugandan - Rwandan Collin Sekajugo, Tamrat surprises us with his sensible vision of the natural environment and with his viewpoint concerning the demand of the effects of our daily behavior on the global agenda for the future of our planet. This time, we will start a collaboration with the gallery Galeria Lola Ventós in Figueras, hoping to spread from now our artists' talent around Catalonia.

10 day Writing Workshop in Poetry and Creative Nonfiction  with Sharon Dolin, an award-winning American poet. "A workshop, as always, is a space for sharing and receiving feedback on a piece of writing. I will be teaching the fundamentals of ekphrasis: writing about art, with examples drawn from the Anglo-American tradition. I will offer new approaches to writing in conversation with art as well as specific writing exercises." Per a més informació i inscripcions: jiwar@jiwarbarcelona.com
