Composer Neil Martin, playwright Owen McCafferty and novelist Glenn Patterson will appear at the Black Box next Wednesday.

This will be the first of a series of local and international events and collaborations involving music and literature, including events at the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, Writers' Camps, and a conference and festival in summer 2016.

The event, The Artist, will be staged during Queen's University's Festival of Collaborative Humanities which runs from October 12-16. It is supported by the Institute of Collaborative Humanities at Queen's University.

Oliver Cole, Irish musician and one-time frontman for rockers Turn, will play live.
