Ballarat Writers is supporting Minerva Speaks, a project to put words into the mouth of the Minerva statue atop the Ballaarat Mechanics Institute.
Minerva’s announcements will be broadcast over Sturt Street weekly throughout March 2017 where the audience, in the Titanic Bandstand opposite the institute, can listen to her words of wisdom and learning. The words for her announcements will be drawn from the writers of Ballarat who will be inspired to craft her words through a workshop and writing phase.
The workshop is on Sunday September 25, 2–4pm, in the Hooper Room, Ballaarat Mechanics Institute, 117 Sturt St, Ballarat. Bring writing materials. RSVP by email to Lynden Nicholls or phone 0431 349747 by September 23. Writers will be paid commensurate with the Australian Society of Authors rates.
