The six days will involve reflective and practical learning alongside experienced lead artists, who will present their own creative journeys and share their experience and knowledge of how they sustain and develop their creative practices and balance everyday life. Individuals will map out and reflect on their own journeys to date and will be encouraged to take the time to discover where they want to go next. During the explorative, collaborative and reflective group sessions, invaluable professional and practical support is on hand providing useful tips, tools and contacts to assist individuals to take forward their own ideas and move their creative practice forward.
