Event description

Description

Collaboration in the field is the sixth and final workshop in a series of six practical artist professional development sessions for artists working within socially engaged practice, hosted by Heart of Glass in collaboration with Mark Devereux Projects. The sessions will take place in St Helens between November 2018 and April 2019. Find out more about this programme and Mark Devereux Projects on our website here. This session will be co-facilitated by artist Shaun C. Badham, please find more information here.

Socially engaged practitioners work with a variety of people, from the public to local authorities, and often require several different ‘voices’. This session will look at the strategies artists can employ to work with a range of diverse stakeholders, communities and partners; including how to navigate bureaucracy.

Artists will be contacted via the email address given at booking and invited to share questions, concerns or previous experiences associated with the workshop content, and will also be asked to answer a number of questions to help the workshops run as smoothly as possible.

  • 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.
