The WGBC is making its glorious return with Kae Tempest’s manifesto on creativity, On Connection. Published in late 2020, On Connection responded not just to the immediate impact of isolation and disconnect arising in response to lockdowns, but to a more broad, long term sense of alienation experienced by many millenials (and others) as they approach middle age. Tempest draws on over 20 years of experience as a poet, musician and performer to argue for creativity as a means of fostering both collective and interpersonal connection. This books invites readers to reflect on their creative practices, both material and immaterial (I, for example, maintain that reading is my artform).
Below you will find articles and interviews that you might find helpful to expand your reading, but there is no obligation to engage with these resources, they are purely supplemental.
