Open Call: Arts Practice as a Reflective Process

10am – 4pm

Thursday, June 4th: Tate Liverpool, Albert Dock, Waterfront, Liverpool L3 4BB

Friday, June 5th:    Langtree Park, St.Helens R.F.C, WA9 3AL

A two-day professional development opportunity for artists working in collaborative and socially engaged practice in any discipline, living and working in the North West of England. Booking essential as places are limited. Please send attached application form to by Friday 15 May. Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 22 May.

This free two-day workshop will focus on reflective practice and will explore ways in which the reflexive skills central to the artistic process can be brought into play in our work with others: especially in the context of developing our practice in collaborative, multi-disciplinary or participatory settings.

Using a mix of practical interventions and peer led conversations we will examine themes such as cultural identity, leadership styles and the ethics and principles of co-creation.

We will use embodied learning methods to look at the ways in which the creative physicalisation of our thoughts and ideas can help us bring theory and practice together. Enabling us to not only present our own practice more confidently but also allowing us to reflect more meaningfully on our interactions with others.

Led by Chrissie Tiller this workshop will draw on Chrissie’s work on Training the Reflective Practitioner, using creative and arts based approaches to describe and evaluate participatory arts practice, her recent participatoryartsalphabet for the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and her leadership of the MA in Participatory Arts Practice at Goldsmiths.
