The impetus to write comes in all forms. Join us as we apply a creative writing process to the images and art we see in the AGA. We will be creating images and poetry inspired by the themes and concepts within the exhibition Peter von Tiesenhausen: Songs of Pythagoras.


Creating conversations around art and the many different ways we appreciate it is what Liam enjoys most about working at the AGA. Having signed on in October 2017, Liam comes from a background in theory, history, performance and literature. He has previous experience as a heritage interpreter at the Alberta Legislature, as well as actively runs writing workshops in the city. What interests Liam most with visual art, is its poetic potency and its ability to speak with or without words.
