Anne-Marie Culhane and the Art of Invitation
With Ruth Ben-Tovim, Anne-Marie Culhane and Lucy Neal
This course is back by popular demand.
Are you looking for effective ways to bring groups of people together and maintain their involvement?
Are you trying to encourage people to respond to the social and ecological challenges of our time and become active in the world?
Would you like to explore more creative ways of engaging communities?
Do you want to find out about inspirational ways to reach and include more diverse groups of people?
Do you want to learn about the craft of making things happen?
Would you like to explore how making art together can accelerate change?
Activating participation is an essential craft, and the course leaders looked at a range of approaches to invite people to join in. Participants on the course have learned by doing and left having developed their own plans, activities and skills for change for their own projects, organisations and communities.
The course facilitator’s work spans creative projects in formal and informal spaces, working with communities, activists, politicians, policy makers, service providers, educators, seeking to develop and create change.
Join us for a week of creative exploration. Each day will include sessions focusing on inspiring case studies, specialist workshops and presentations from contributors. This will be combined with practical group work, celebration, solo reflection time, and 1:1 mentoring to develop your own practice and process.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own project ideas, plans and experiences as material to develop within the course. At the end of the week you will come away with new creative tools for change that can resource you and the projects, communities and organisations that you are involved with and give you the confidence and skills to create new ones.
