Wradical Riting #1 – ‘Your own nazi nation’ (Think Tank) /// Þín eigin nasistaþjóð – barnabók fyrir fullorðið fólk sem ætti að vita betur
For this first session of Wradical Riting we will take on a hot topic issue and find ways to make it into an accessible create-your-own-adventure childrens book.
The name of the childrens book ‘ Your own nazi nation’ refers to the idea of icelandic legislation being heavily influenced and based in nazi ideology.
We will try to tackle and dismantle the concepts of what people generally imagine with naziism coming from the outside as a threat and represent the nazi aspects from within the system in the hope of exposing laws and protocol that institutions like the police and UTL follow that should not be condoned or be dismissed as normal procedure by decent human beings.
In this first of many workshops we will take on the issue of talking about an issue that most would want to avoid and lay it down in simple childlike terms so that people may engage in the conversation from a ground level.
The aim is not to end up with a piece of work that is aimed at children but an informative piece of work with a childlike approach to a serious cultural issue.
We hope to see as many of you as possible. It is not neccessary to have writing skills or even to have any interest in writing at all. Of course if you have other skills they are more than welcome and can be incorporated into the project in many ways. The main thing is to have a conversation and open up our minds and voices for a better and more aware community.
Hope to see you all.
