Use of creative writing as a means of building a vibrant community and reinforcement of sound thinking in migrants. Introduction into civic engagement opportunities, strengthening personal capacities and more.
Writing hackathon is an oustanding possibility to get out of noisy Prague and in the solitude of a house in the forest to focus on writing. You do not need to be a professional writer to write, you need to write and be bold in what you want to say in your writing. Thus in our project FAW we have 6 trips out of the city for 10-15 people to solve deliberately this issue. FAW creates space for like-minded but with different backgroundpeople to meet and create.
So if you have a passion for writing and are interested in meeting and networking with new people based on common interests, then be sure to join our writing hackathon!
Our major pillarstones are:
- 2 days in a house close to Prague.
- Writing lectorium.
- Practicing writing.
The details will be shared with you after your application will go through the checking. To find out how to apply call one of our Team meembers, 774 149 480, Tatiana.
