The BLA-BLA-BLASPHEMY writers retreat finds its placement in the Irish countryside, the most recent country to revoke the presence of blasphemy laws within its constitution. During this retreat, inhabitants will explore the disruptive potential of blasphemy as a literary device. By creating a safe environment for obscenity, BLUE aims to construct a programme that enables the negotiation of shame regarding taking up space with marginal views. Encouraging these lapses in discipline, we will explore the power and responsibility of utterance in the hopes of alleviating (in part) the instantaneous grip of ideology in the struggle against self-censorship.
