The Reader’s Bloc is an online/IRL group of readers taking part in reading, listening and sharing exercises around texts that help us learn more about ourselves, the identities we share and the communities we live in.

For our next session, we are thinking about art and the various ways in which it helps us navigate and process our emotions, thoughts, ideas and lives in general. We are reading two texts —  the wonderful semi-memoir, The Lonely City by Olivia Laing, where she talks about how art helped her make sense of her loneliness in a new city; and the heartwarming personal essay, The Art of Waiting by Spencer Tweedy, exploring the connections between inspiration, muses and creating art. 

This time, we’ve taken a slightly different approach by bringing in one of our lovely collective members, Shubham Jain, to assist with the selection of readings and co-facilitation for this session. 

On registration, we will send you the text and the topics/themes we will discuss.

This programme is exclusively for 18–25 year olds. 

This session is conducted as part of our engagements for the MAP OSCH Collective. The MAP OSCH Collective is a community for young people (18-25 year olds) to engage with the arts and culture sector. The collective is for, of and by young people — to explore our shared identities and interests through art.
