Description: 

Are you an artist or a creative practitioner who is concerned with the cultural impact of the ecological emergency? Do you make work that centres on environmental and social concerns? Would you like to develop a deeper artistic engagement with these inevitably entangled key concerns?

The BCA Summer Academy is a new initiative, placing ecoliteracy and agency for ecosocial justice in the context of Ireland and beyond at the centre of an immersive three-week program. Weekly lectures and discussions will guide the trajectory of the programme with participants co-creating the necessary discursive space to foster a supportive community of peer exchange and enquiry.

Focusing on the studio, immersion in the protected limestone karst landscape of the Burren and collective activities, the Summer Academy combines artistic practice with seminars and workshops aimed at expanding creative discourse on how to best respond to the unprecedented and urgent challenges we all face.

The Summer Academy offers participants large scale studio spaces on the BCA campus in which to develop research and produce new work. Visiting Artist lectures and seminars take place each week alongside studio visits by Summer Academy Lecturers. Workshops include, but are not limited to, Walking, Collaboration & Foraging. Fieldtrips will also involve key BCA partners Burren Beo and the Burren GeoPark, who manage stewardship of the Burren as a protected environment.

Applications due by April 30, 2021

Dates:

Project Case Study Writing: Workshops Wednesday 10 March 10am –12pm

Project Case Study Writing: Workshops Thursday 18 March 10am –12pm

 

Workshop Overview

Following the Case Study Webinar, there will be an opportunity to take part in one of two case study workshops designed to support you to write a case study for an arts, health and wellbeing project based on the WAHWN Case Study template.

The WAHWN Case Study template was developed in consultation with more than 90 arts and health practitioners, artists, academics and policy makers, with input from the Welsh NHS Confederation and Arts Council of Wales.  It has been developed to speak to Assembly Members, policy makers and healthcare partners as well as to arts audiences.

The workshops are aimed at anyone who has delivered and evaluated an arts, health and well-being project and wishes to share the outcomes, impacts and learning from that project through a case study.  

It will take you through the process of identifying the information you need to write the case study, including:  

  • What is notable or important about the project
  • Key messages relating to the outcomes and impacts of the project
  • Learning and implications for future practice
  • We will then look at how to structure your narrative as a credible and meaningful story of change or learning.

The workshop will explore how you can make best use of your Case Study once written, including: 

  • What you hope to achieve by writing a Case Study
  • Who the audience is for the Case Study
  • How you will share and disseminate the Case Study
  • Examining a range of existing Case Studies, we will look at how to use quotes, film, sound, and image to bring them to life and unpack ethical implications around consent and confidentiality.

This is a hands-on workshop for participants who have an evaluated project on which they wish to base their case study. Participants will be asked to do some pre-workshop activity to compile the basic information about their project before the workshop and be ready to apply their learning to develop the first draft of a case study.

Description: 

Webinar Overview

This event is free.

Case Studies are a vital means of sharing practice. They make the work of this sector visible to a wide range of stakeholders including funders, policy makers and health partners.

A well-written case study, based on credible evaluation findings, can deliver great value to you and your organisation. A good project case study will:  

  • Help communicate what you do to a range of audiences
  • Demonstrate impact and accountability
  • Raise your profile and amplify the reach of your work.
  • Support conference submissions and award entries
  • Strengthen funding bids and tenders for commissions
  • Create a resource for the future, embedding knowledge and learning within your organisation.

 

During this webinar hosted by Willis Newson Director, Jane Willis, we will:  

  • Introduce and explain the WAHWN Case Study template
  • Hear from a range of contributors as to why case studies are so important to the sector
  • Understand how to develop a case study that speaks to the needs of policy makers, Welsh Assembly Members, and health partners
  • Look at how case studies can be used to support practice and sector development
  • Unpick what it takes to develop a compelling, creative, and credible case study that is both meaningful and memorable

 

The WAHWN Case Study

The WAHWN Case Study template was developed in consultation with more than 90 arts and health practitioners, artists, academics and policy makers who took part in three two-day Creative and Credible: Evaluation for Arts Health and Wellbeing training programmes in Swansea, Cardiff and Wrexham between October 2018 and March 2019, with input from the Welsh NHS Confederation and Arts Council of Wales.  It has been developed to speak to Assembly Members, policy makers and healthcare partners as well as to arts audiences.

WAHWN is able to share relevant credible Case Studies through the Welsh Government Cross Party Group on Arts and Health which exists to raise awareness of arts and health work among Assembly Members. The Welsh NHS Confederation also includes Case Studies in their briefing papers which are circulated to all health boards, health trusts and the Higher Education Institutes Wales (HEIW).
