About the organisers

Based in the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary University of London, the new Centre for Contemporary Writing hosts literary events, research and practice workshops, and publishes the Subtexts creative writing journal. 

Whitechapel Gallery is located in the heart of London’s East-End – one of the most diverse and creative quarters in the world.  Locally embedded and globally connected, the Gallery was founded in 1901 to enrich the cultural offer for the people of East London. 

Their mission is to make contemporary art and ideas accessible to the widest possible audiences, and our pioneering learning and outreach programmes recognise the critical role that art can play in firing imaginations, reflecting lived experiences, and opening up new possibilities for thinking, feeling and dreaming.
