Carnival. New Architecture Writers: Learning from Venice

A round table on the future of architectural writing: Monday, 17 July 2023, 2:00 pm – 6:30 pm at Ca’ Giustinian, Venice.



New Architecture Writers: Learning from Venice is the title of the second event in the Carnival programme, which will take place on Monday 17 July from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm in the Sala delle Colonne at Ca’ Giustinian, the headquarters of the Venice Biennale.

The event will be the result of a 5-day residency in Venice of the study and training programme for emerging writers New Architecture Writers N.A.W. with the activities of Biennale College Architettura 2023. The public meeting on July 17th  will introduce the work of the N.A.W., with a live demonstration of its pedagogical methods and a panel discussion on the future of architecture writing.

Participating in the programme will be N.A.W. Oluwatobiloba Ajayi, Davide Bugarin, Mir Jetha, Leela Keshav, Matthew Maganga, Ferial Massoud, Nne Owuasu, Maya Patel and Helen Weldegaber Tesfamariam, along with N.A.W. directors Thomas Aquilina and Tom Wilkinson, and Cindy Walters and Ellis Woodman of the Architecture Foundation.

New Architecture Writers (N.A.W.) is a free programme now in its fifth year, dedicated to people of colour who often represent a minority in design and architecture journalism. N.A.W is based in London and offers young people the opportunity to develop their critical voice through a series of courses and writing workshops, led by leading figures in journalism, curating and broadcasting.

Carnival is the cycle of meetings, lectures, round tables, films and performances designed by curator Lesley Lokko to animate the Biennale Architettura 2023 and explore the themes of The Laboratory of the Future, open until November 26th.

About the Carnival programme Lesley Lokko said:

“Conceived as a space of liberation rather than a spectacle or entertainmentCarnival offers a space for communication in which words, views, perspectives, and opinions are traded, heard, analysed, and remembered. Politicians, policymakers, poets, filmmakers, documentary makers, writers, activists, community organisers and public intellectuals will share the stage with architects, academics, and students. Curating a public event programme is increasingly a form of architectural practice that attempts to bridge the gulf between architects and the public.”

Carnival is supported by Rolex, Exclusive Partner and Official Timepiece of the Exhibition.
Admission is free until capacity is reached.
Simultaneous translation service to and from Italian and English will be available.
