Words, Vision & Sound

An immersive, multi-layered experience of literature formed of three specially commissioned texts. Speculative stories will be projected onto screens for audiences to read whilst they’re enveloped by original sound and narration. 

It features the work of projectionist Zaron, writers Laura Bui, Selma Dabbagh and James Giddings, and musicians Commodo, DSL Official, Utah?, Rider Shafique and Georgia Williams. It is curated by Somerset Maugham Award-winning writer Akeem Balogun. 

 Words, Vision & Sound was originally commissioned by the University of Sheffield’s Off the Shelf Festival of Words with support by Arts Council England. HuddLitFest is the first literature festival to share this event. 

Note: This event will be followed by our Pitch to Publishers event, which you can book here: https://www.huddlitfest.org.uk/event/pitch-to-publishers/
