Go on a dérive with Will Self for charity

On Wednesday 11 July there is a very rare opportunity to learn about psychogeography and how to enact the dérive (drift) – the Situationist’s method for creatively remaking the world – with Will, starting at the Chandos House Treatment for Addiction in Bristol.

The morning session will be for Chandos House residents, as part of their ongoing therapy – and the second will be open to those who’d like to contribute something to support the work of the facility and learn something about this technique. Will stresses that you don’t have to be an artist or writer to gain from the dérive, but that people who work creatively may well find it extremely helpful.

Will is offering as a component of the afternoon, to read/view/listen to any work that’s inspired by the session, and offer a bespoke critique in the weeks to come.

The session will begin at Chandos House at 2pm and last for three hours.

There are only 10 places available – email kate@chandoshouse.org, tickets/donations from £65, chandoshouse.org.
