ARTISTS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS FOR SOCIALLY ENGAGED PRACTITIONERS - TRAVEL BURSARIES AVAILABLE


Heart of Glass, in collaboration with Mark Devereux Projects, is delighted to announce a series of six practical artist professional development sessions for artists working within socially engaged practice. The sessions will take place in St Helens between November 2018 and April 2019.

This new collaboration is one component of Heart of Glass’ new national professional development programme for artists, producers and commissioning agencies working in social and community contexts. Details of other components including specialist areas of practice and coaching & mentoring will be announced in due course.

Led by Mark Devereux Projects, each workshop in the series will address key aspects of realising projects and commissions, providing attendees with the confidence and know-how to move their practice forward.

Each workshop will be tailored to the participating artists’ key questions and concerns; providing information, advice and guidance alongside open discussions and peer-to-peer sharing.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Workshop lunches will be hosted by a different member of the Heart of Glass staff/associate artist team to provide informal networking opportunities and access to staff expertise where relevant.

Whilst primarily aimed at artists working within socially engaged practice, artists working within other mediums are also welcome.

Sessions can be booked individually or as a whole programme at a discounted rate. Find out about the season ticket here.
