Dead Letter Club: Convict Edition Museum of Brisbane

THE SLOW COMMUNICATION REVOLUTION ARRIVES IN BRISBANE

Tired of Twitter, txtspeak and emojis? 

Dead Letter Club, the world’s original creative letter writing movement joins with the Museum of Brisbane to celebrate their LIFE IN IRONS exhibition with an evening of creative writing, mystery, parlour games and low commitment pen pals.

Pick up a pen and let the ink flow.

It is now standard to express ourselves through the immediacy of emojis, GIFs, and lols. Communicating in sentences, phone calls and letters is becoming a thing of the past.

We ask, what might be lost because of this? Dead Letter Club is our answer.

"In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives" - Anatole Broyard

In this special Convict edition we invite you to explore the Life in Irons exhibition and immerse yourself in their stories.  Using this as inspiration to create your own story through the lost art of letter writing.

“Dead Letter Club was one of the most genuinely creative, powerful and beautiful experiences I've ever taken part in.” Gemma Jones, Craft Victoria

Sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your spit seals the envelope. Thoughts revealed through the flourishes and flow of the pen, the texture and lingering scent on the paper.

Dead Letter Club is the slow communication revolution, existing in dedication to the written word through creative letter writing.

Assume an identity and correspond with others in the room over the evening remaining unknown to each other. Until the end that is.

TICKETS VIA MoB

****PLEASE NOTE**** 
It is important for participants to arrive by start time - 5.30pm - and stay for the course of the correspondence. Don't ditch your pen-pal by leaving early.
