The Taliesin project in Denmark, Western Australia is a series of workshops exploring the stages of a truly creative response in times of societal and environmental crisis.
The project offers a journey into the Tale of Taliesin, compelling for writers because it provides a pathway to access the poetic imagination. Taliesin means ‘radiant brow’ in Welsh and his story outlines the archetypal process of becoming a creative human being.
The workshops will be run as part of the Denmark Arts Brave New Works Festival 2021.
