This workshop will explore monsters from different cultures as a form and metaphor for collaboration. Participants will be given short introductions to a variety of monsters from European and South East Asian traditions, then recreate these monsters collaboratively using image, text or performance.

This process will examine the nature of shared imagination across cultures, and how collaboration can produce new forms and narratives that enrich the imagination.

Participants should come away from the workshop with a deeper understanding of how the collaborative process involves both differences and affinities on a personal and cultural level.
