CreativeMornings is a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types - A free event including a 20 minute talk, plus coffee!
This month we have writer & playwright Meltem Arikan.
Arikan has written 8 novels, 1 book of research and 3 plays. She’s received several awards and was short-listed for the Freedom of Expression Award in 2014 by Index on Censorship for her play ‘Mi Minor’ which the Turkish authorities claimed was a rehearsal for the Gezi Park demonstrations in 2013. Their subsequent hate campaign, fuelled by state sponsored media, forced her to leave Turkey to start living in Wales.
Since 2011, Arikan’s articles on the changing digital world, censorship, women’s rights and child abuse are frequently published across the globe by websites including News Junkie Post and Index on Censorship.
A celebrated photographer Meltem has started to incorporate her writings into her visual work creating a unique technique of manipulating images. We will be hearing all about Meltem’s incredible life, creative processes and why she has chosen to dedicate her life to fighting prejudice, for freedom of speech and encouraging others to question common notions of reality.
Come join us question the concept of reality!
