Katrina Naomi has been announced as writer-in-residence at the Arnolfini throughout their 'Emotional Archaeology' exhibition.

Regarding her being selected for the post she says:

I'm delighted to be Arnolfini's writer-in-residence. I can't stop smiling about it. I'm looking forward to Daphne Wright's Emotional Archeology show, I like her themes and approach, and I'm interested in seeing where her art will take my poetry.

There will be a number of public outcomes to the residency, including a live presentation event in December. Keep an eye on the Arnolfini’s website and social media pages for updates.
