The workshop Writing welcome: responding to stories from Trampoline House offers a reflective and creative space for reading and responding to letters, stories, and other writing from lumbung member Trampoline House and various asylum and deportation camps around Denmark. As the author Alice LaPlante says, “good creative writing is fueled by an urgent desire to understand something that eludes understanding.” Much of the writing presented here engages incomprehension and injustice, documenting what it means to live a life that challenges the inalienability of human rights and dignity. Together, the participants will explore ways of writing and talking across borders, citizenship status and belonging, and how writing might open up a space for hospitality, exploration, and creating understanding across categories that seek to divide.
