Course made possible thanks to The Sussex Community Foundation
Applications are now open for the Outside In Step Up: Leading Workshops programme at Fabrica, Brighton. The partnership for the course has been made possible thanks to a £4,250 grant from The Sussex Community Foundation.
Leading Workshops is part of Step Up, Outside In’s training and professional development programme which aims to increase participants’ skills and confidence enabling them to take on employed roles or become self-employed in the arts, a notoriously exclusive sector.
This will be the first time the course has run in collaboration with Fabrica – a visual arts organisation that commissions contemporary visual art installations – which will also offer opportunities for course participants to go on and deliver workshops at the venue afterwards.
About the project
Step Up: Leading Workshops will see 15 artists learn all the skills needed to prepare and deliver their own creative workshops, from risk assessments and practical considerations to working with people who have a range of different access and support needs. Over ten weekly sessions, the course will contain a mixture of practical exercises, assignments, one-to-one support and theory sessions.
