Genquent Tongue is a free monthly educational space for writing within the visual arts, run by and for its participants.

Eligible to partake are artists, writers, curators, poets, and researchers.
Genquent Tongue will meet on Wednesdays, 6.30pm - 8pm in Studio 6 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios on the following dates:
29 May / 19 June / 24 July / 21 August / Further dates tbc
To join Genquent Tongue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by the 24th of May with a short bio and paragraph discussing your work and why you’d like to join.
Genquent Tongue is organised by Molly May O’Leary, with support from TBG+S Learning and Public Engagement Curator Róisín Bohan, as part of Temple Bar Gallery + Studio’s Free Space programme. Molly May O'Leary is an artist who works with language, using mathematical and visual cues to play with the boundaries of rationality.
