Arts in the Community Training Day
Are you an early-career community arts practitioner, or is your support service looking to embed arts provision into their practice?
This day-long training session led by experienced arts practitioner Ruth Collins will provide you with the basics in community arts project facilitation. It includes:
- Access to case studies
- Advice on funding, partnership working and project delivery
- Time for peer support, networking and action learning
- A list of resources for you to take away with you
It is perfect for freelancers just entering the sector or those looking to support resilience and recovery in communities through the arts, across all creative disciplines. It also suits those working in community organisations or social care who would like to develop arts projects to support their beneficiaries.
Places on the session are £20 – the training is subsidised with funding with support through Arts Council England’s Cultural Recovery Fund. Bursaries are also available to support transport costs for those travelling across the region.
To ensure social distancing, places are limited to 15.
We have travel bursaries available for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend the session. Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Arts in the Community Bursary’ in the subject line. In the body of the email, please let us know the location that you require assistance from/to and the mode of transport you are comfortable taking.
