The Self-Organised workshop will be an opportunity to hear from (and pick the brains of) artists with a wealth of experience including those who have run successful projects at past Weekenders. As well as to meet and share ideas with other people thinking about organising projects for PAW 2017.

Bookable one-to-one slots (small groups welcomed!) will be available for an initial discussion of your plans with a PAW Coordinator or VAP Activators. Please register your interest when you book on Eventbrite and we’ll try our best to fit in enough short slots to accommodate everyone!

With diversity and inclusiveness among its core values, VAP is committed to making its public activities accessible to all, including people with disabilities and other access needs. This workshop has step free access, if you have other needs/concerns, please let us know ASAP and will do our best to adapt - rsvp.visualartsplymouth@gmail.com

As there are only limited places for this workshop it is essential that if you are no longer able to attend you cancel your ticket. Please try to give a minimum of 24 hours notice so we are able to re-offer the place. VAP maintains a record of anyone that fails to cancel their place in advance.

This workshop is funded through the city wide Horizon project, a collaborative programme developed between Visual Arts Plymouth, KARST, Plymouth Arts Centre, Plymouth College of Art, Plymouth City Council, University of Plymouth and supported by the Art Council England’s ‘Ambition for Excellence’ funding programme and Plymouth Culture
