Emerging Established Exploring



We will be rescheduling this event to September 2016


If you are fresh out of college and looking for experience, or if you are yearning to offload the weight of your lifelong experience, this one day sharing event is for you.

We will use participatory arts practice to explore and investigate issues that participatory arts practitioners face today.

There will be participatory opportunities in the morning with some of the most experienced arts practitioners in Wales.

In the afternoon you will be invited to offer and to facilitate a practice to explore issues of relevance to you.

The aim is to use creative practices to process the changes that we seek in ourselves and in the environments in which we work.

Lunch is provided

Tickets are £30 (conc. £20) and can be purchase here.
