The Tinderbox Writers Lab 2013 is a collaboration with the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queens University. This Lab will bring together four writers and a team of sonic artists under the guidance of Justin Yang and Hanna Slattne to explore how dramatic narratives can be told through the unique facilities at SARC. The four writers that will explore how to create a soundbased and visceral experience for their audience are Colin Bell, Mick Duke, Rosemary Jenkinson and Jimmy McAleavey and it all kicks of in the middle of May.
