Sustaining Life as a Creative

Creative Learning

Deadline: 03 March 2015 at 17:00

The programme will support individuals through explorative and collaborative group sessions with experienced artists who will offer inspiration and practical advice to those looking to professionalise their existing practice and to pursue or sustain a creative life.

The 6 day professional development programme will involve learning from experienced lead artists, Chris Biddlecombe, Gabrielle Reith Thomson and Aubin Stewart, who will present their creative journeys, sharing real life experiences of how they have sustained and developed their different creative practices. Individuals on the course will map out and reflect on their own journeys to date, discover where they want to go next and explore the different routes they could take to get there.

Professional and practical support, along with useful tools and contacts, will be given to assist individuals or small groups to take their own ideas and creative practice forward. This will include workshops to assist with planning and development and presenting an initial idea for a new piece of work, project or enterprise. Through peer feedback and one to one advice sessions, a plan will be developed to support individuals to map out their next steps.

The programme will take place on Thursdays & Fridays (10am – 2pm): 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 March 2015.
