Cafes of Europe - Spa Towns and Utopia Day

I will participating in this on the 5th March at Komedia in Bath. The writing lab I run will be giving a performance plus I will be chairing a discussion on fictional versions of Bath and young people's ideas of "ideal" cities and how this often blurs the line between dystopia and utopia. There's a nice article with more details here and here . People are invited to pop down to The Chancery of Lost and Found afternwards to contribute there own ideal cities to my collaborative installation as part of the Bath Literature Festival. I'm really excited that this could give an interesting international and spa-specific element to the work created. I believe this also coincides with World Book Day, so there should be lots of literary things to celebrate all round.
