In November 2007 David Pledger was invited by the Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to deliver two public lectures on How To Make Art In the 21st C and a workshop on writing for interdisciplinary performance and media art projects.

The workshops included an overview of various methods for exploring and developing different genres of writing for live performance and screen-based visual arts practice: From Dialogue to Abstract Verse; Coding for Multimedia Performance; and Writing for installation projects with drama as a central medium.

The workshop was designed to develop artists' dramaturgy in the making of artworks in discrete and hybrid art-form practice with an emphasis on modes and models of collaboration between artists and art forms.
