Artists’ Conversations – Growing your practice

27/02/2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Artists Conversations: supporting artists working with education and in participatory settings

Saturday 27 February / Eden Court THeatre, Bishops Road, Inverness

How do we stay nourished as practitioners and as artists?

How do we grow as practitioners and as people? How do we encourage participants and ourselves? How do we reflect on our practice, support and listen to each other? Let’s have the conversation we need about the joys and challenges of working as an artist in the community.

You may be a musician, visual artist, dance or drama practitioner, storyteller, writer, sculptor, graffiti artist, animator, puppeteer, jeweller, costume designer. Whatever your art form, if you take your skills and practice into participatory settings – schools, prisons, care settings, youth clubs, community projects – you’re welcome to join us for an Open Space day of conversations in which you set the agenda.

An Open Space event – where participants set the agenda – for artists who work or teach in participatory settings to connect, network, share practice and cook up a recipe for nourishing their practice.
