A Call to Create: Manifesto Workshop with Patrick Close

In conjunction with Culture Days, the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance (SAA) and the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild (SWG) are proud to bring you a free manifesto writing workshop.


When: Friday, September 27 | 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Where: SWG Office | 100, 1150 - 8th Avenue | Regina
Cost: FREE

  • A manifesto is a declaration of belief tied to action.

  • A manifesto can address an individual, a group, a state of being, a vocation, a nation or all of humanity.

  • A manifesto is always a call to action, whether personal, social or philosophical.

  • A manifesto can be a tool for social, cultural, political or environmental change or for personal growth and development.

  • A manifesto may take many forms... written, graphic, performance and more.

  • A manifesto has the capacity to be creative and/or destructive.

This workshop will gather a small group of individuals to explore some examples from history, discuss the concepts of advocacy and intentionality, and to create and share our own manifesti.

The SWG and the SAA will provide paper, pens, and markers; participants should bring any materials or media not provided that they might need to express their manifesto.

The SWG and the SAA will be printing the manifesti! This workshop is limited to 12 participants. Please register by contacting Jessica at (306) 780-9820 or by email at

The workshop will be guided by Patrick Close, a visual artist, poet, activist, advocate and cyberflaneur. Patrick is known to ask many questions, but not to insist on answers, to draw attention to things neither seen nor heard, and to promote cognitive dissonance as an essential survival skill. He is also known to utterly confuse and confound many with his insistence on reaching sublime heights of simplicity and clarity in matters both temporal and cultural.
