Ester Eva writing workshops for artists


Artist Ester Eva Damen organizes this series of lessons to give other artists some tools on how to write texts about their own work, proposals for funding, and more. She will help to get closer to the core of their own fascinations, keeping the text authentic and clear.

Practice. In a short series of lessons, tools are given to write a practical applicable text. How can you let go of self-censorship and produce text? How can you get closer to the core of your own fascination? And how can you be an editor again and give everything a head and tail?

Authentic. We’re trying to find authentic words. Many texts by artists become too pretentious or too general. Make it into something that really suits you. Avoid using the same word too often. Give a picture. Let others feel your passion. Develop the courage to give an impromptu talk about your work to a group. It is possible to step in just like that, but it is useful to bring your own project. We work with techniques that can lead to more freedom in writing and larger concentration.

Feedback. Within the safety of a set of benchmarks, the group is invited to provide feedback on the texts so that they become sharper. You learn in this way to positively use criticism.

Language. We encourage you to write and make notes in your mother tongue, we share the texts in English. Your level of English is not important for the exercises in this workshop.

Ester Eva Damen is a filmmaker with a background in the visual arts. She studied at the Film Academy (script & direction) and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. She advises artists who want to develop a text about their own work in groups as well as in one-to-one sessions.
