Creative Workshop: (un)interrupted Tongues

Sat 15 June 2024 , 12pm-4pm

Weston Park Museum

Led by writer and maker Dal Kular, (un)interrupted tongues is a creative zine-making workshop for people of colour exploring themes of the 1947 Partition of India.

Inspired by Kular's own exploration as a 'grandchild of the partition' in her book of the same name and conversations with other partition grandchildren in Sheffield, the session offers a safe space for conversation, remembering, creative writing, making mini collages and turning them into a mini-zine.  


Themes explored include homeland, displacement, migration, ancestral/transgenerational trauma, memory and strength, healing and remembering. The workshop will build gently and be safely drawn to a close, with after-care guidance and next steps. 


This event is part of the Migration Matter Festival. Please note, this event is for people of colour only. 


Dal Kular is a writer, zine-maker and community facilitator of creative writing and multi-media arts for healing and liberation. Leaving school at 16 years old with 3 O-levels and being told she could never be a writer, Dal returned to the power of words and writing in her late forties, gaining an MSc in Therapeutic Writing. Her debut poetry book (un)interrupted tongues is published by Fly on The Wall Press.  


Current projects include a commission for Dig Where You Stand, Black Nature in Residence's 2024 creative-in-residence for the Peak District, Peaks of Colour's forthcoming 2024 writer-in-residence and she has a chapter being published in the anthology 'Wild Service', 2024. She loves making zines, botanical journals and roaming the Peak District in her tiny campervan.
