Re:Vision is a series of events exploring ideas about our contemporary experience through literature and film. Specially curated film screenings will follow talks with international award-winning writers and directors including Kamila Shamsie, Tom Pickard and Shamim Sarif. The aim of the series is to offer new opportunities for thinking and writing, both creatively and critically, about contemporary issues, from telecommunications and travel to nuclear futures and outer space.

The series also consists of eight themed writing workshops (up to 15 places available). The workshops are FREE to attend and will take place at Broadway on Wednesday afternoons (2.30 - 4.30pm) from 19 April to 7 June. Free tickets to the screenings are available for participants. Participants are not expected to have any prior experience of writing or knowledge of the field. They will work with specialists within a supportive workshop environment in order to produce new writing and will have the opportunity to read their work at an event on 14 June.
