Creative Alliance and Friction Arts bring you a unique opportunity to develop your socially engaged practice and use your art form to connect with hard to reach sectors of the community.
This practice led programme will challenge and test not only your creativity but also your boundaries, whilst also inspiring and giving confidence to anyone who's considered running workshops or teaching/mentoring with difficult to reach groups.
The course is open to all creatives/artists, regardless of your technical practice.
We've tailored the programme for evenings and weekends, to fit around traditional working hours.
Eligibility: As the core programme is supported by the Learning and Skills Council, utilising public funding from the European Social Fund there are certain eligibility criteria. You must be in some form of employment (i.e. fulltime, part time or registered self employment) and living in an Objective 2 area - For further clarification on these terms please contact the CA office for advice.
Deadline for Submission: If you are interested in getting involved please send a CV and personal statement to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 8th June, for a programme start mid June.
What's in it for me?
This programme is fully funded, so you'll have free access to a great learning opportunity which results in a level 2 award in progression with awarding body OCN You will also have the opportunity to take part/develop an end of programme event, this will be negotiated by the course participants and may take the form of a show, conference, catalogue or perhaps something we haven't even considered, with a secured budget of £2k in place the only limit is the groups imagination.
Invaluable networking and peer to peer support
