Delivering Arts Council training.

ArtatWork offers a variety of training using the arts to support wellbeing

We work with artists and organisations to advise them on how to fund, design, deliver and evaluate arts and wellbeing projects and sessions.

Our training is creative, interactive and encourages skills sharing within the group.

We have previously delivered a series of networking and training days with the Art’s Councils’ Market Place for artists, makers, craftspeople and creative organisations.

‘An Introduction to Developing your Creative Practice and Audiences’ was an opportunity to learn about using the arts to promote wellbeing, to share ideas and meet other artists. It was a fun and interactive training and included ways to:

  • Find and share ways of engaging hard to reach groups, audiences and participants
  • Project planning & delivery through practical planning
  • Fundraising
  • An insight into working with vulnerable people
  • Creative evaluation, including live graphic recording from illustrator Rebecca Osborne.

We have also previously delivered a series of workshops with Babylon Arts for their ‘Library Presents’ project, the aim of which is to get more high quality arts into libraries.
