SCRIBE is an intimate immersive art experience that collects anonymous experiences from public contributors to create a democratic document of an event, designed and led by Australian artist Leisa Shelton.
SCRIBE#09 was in attendance at MWF18, moving across key venues, sites and public gatherings to record a diverse cross-section of experiences from the audience’s engagement with the Festival.
In a series of face-to-face sessions with a scribe who listens, converses and records the experience in writing, audiences at MWF18 were invited to create an ‘affective archive’ of their inner-most thoughts and feelings, in response to the question, ‘What was your experience of MWF?’
The documents were gathered in spoken, drawn and written languages including Braille.
Scribes in attendance at MWF18 were Olivia Satchel, Sally Lewry, Georgia Symons, Audrey McAllister, Laura Hartnell, Ahmarnya Price, Brigid Kitchen and Marisa Sposaro (Braillist).
A full archival copy of all documents #01–#72 is available below, to be read, discussed, considered, reflected on and enjoyed by artists and audiences alike.
We also invite you to contact us to book an appointment to view the Braille content at the MWF office, 11am–4pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
