Event Information

What questions to ask to centralise wellbeing and make really good art. Led by Lou Platt.

As we witness the continued rise in artists drawing from their own personal - often traumatic - lived experiences to create their art, it is important for those artists (and associated practitioners) to know how to create processes that not only look after the art but also look after the people too.

This workshop is for artists/practitioners who are interested in developing their knowledge and skills in creating safer spaces to work in when using autobiographical material.

Using enjoyable action methods, psycho-education and shared collective wisdom, participants will gain better understanding of what to look out for, how to risk assess processes, what support to put in place, when and how.

(This session is available to attend online on Mon 15th Nov)
