On 17 July the New Utrecht School will be offering a workshop about illness and about health. The Irish author Ben Murnane (who wrote a memoir about living with a rare genetic disease) will speak with the participants via a live stream on how writing and art helped him to come to terms with his disease. This workshop is also about how we can become more creative in the wake of Covid-19. At the end of the programme there will be drinks at AKWAGLOT, the floating platform in the Nieuwe Singel.
