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

Content is the same in each workshop.

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).

Creative Reboot: Workshops

Share

Description: 

Part of Engage Scotland's sharing practice events across February and March 2021.

Overview

In collaboration with three freelance artist educators based in Scotland, Engage Scotland is offering sharing practice sessions aimed at gallery educators, artist educators and art and design teachers, during February and March.

These online sessions, delivered via Zoom, have been designed to support, refresh and reinvigorate your creative learning practice during lockdown.

When planning these sessions towards the end of 2020, and even before the introduction of the latest lockdown, we were mindful of just how hard teachers, artists and gallery educators have been working to create fun, interactive ways of delivering great creative learning opportunities in less than optimal conditions. We wanted to create space for three artist educators, who work in a range of settings, to share some of the ways that they have addressed the challenges of the last few months.

We’re doing that in two ways; first with a sharing practice session delivered via Zoom and then as a follow up, with a block of 4 Creative Reboot sessions, also delivered via Zoom.

The artists have put together this video to give context to these sessions:

Event description and booking details

Creative Reboot - 4 week series

Dates: Fridays from 5-6pm, 19 February, 26 February, 5 March 12 March

As a follow up to our sharing practice session on 11 February, we’re going to bring together a smaller group of people to get creative, make art and learn by doing, again via Zoom.

We know that many galleries and arts organisations have been distributing creative resources and delivering online creative workshops during periods of closure.

By attending our Creative Reboot you will experience this blended approach to creative learning, as a participant. These workshops will offer opportunities for interaction and making, with creative resource packs being sent out to participants in advance.

Artists, Lou, Heather and Sam, will each lead a creative workshop before coming together for a final workshop focusing on creative ways of evaluation.

 

The artists’ workshops will cover:

Lou - Studio folders for a diverse making experience using Zoom as an interactive space.

Heather - Turning 2D into 3D: using ordinary materials, grow your own ideas and creative experiments to share with others.

Sam – Alternative art materials, using everyday objects to make a statement, including a short introductory film focusing on a virtual art club in West Lothian with the theme Art as protest

 

Fees:

  • Engage member freelancer £30
  • Non-member freelancer £40
  • Engage member organisation £60
  • Non-member organisation £80

 

Booking

Numbers at the Creative Reboot are limited to just 10 so please book early to secure your place. Places are limited to a maximum of two people from the same organisation.

Please note that postal addresses are required when booking so that resource packs can be sent to you.

Deadline for booking for these events is Wednesday 10 February 2021.

 

Artists’ biographies

Heather Lucchesi

Heather Lucchesi founded the social enterprise company Light Bulb Arts in Edinburgh in 2015 to explore the health and wellbeing benefits of taking part in creative art activities.

She sees visual art as a powerful form of communication, accessible for all ages and stages, and arguably more important now than ever.

With a background in textile design, art and design teaching (specialising in additional support needs for 10 years), gallery education and projects with carers and mental health charities, Heather continues to adapt to changing ways of working. Her first Zoom class started in March 2020 and is still going strong.

More than 30 years after graduating from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, she remains enthusiastic, continues to learn and loves to collect and share ideas.

 

Sam Rutherford

Sam Rutherford is a digital artist specialising in community art projects. She has over 20 years of experience as a freelance art educator working at the National Galleries of Scotland with a variety of groups.

She has a passion for using the visual arts as a means for people to have their voice heard and has recently worked with young people and a homeless charity to explore different ways of doing this.

 

Louise K Fraser

Louise Fraser has been working as a teaching artist for 15 years. Her time is balanced between creating her own artwork from her Leith studio and her education practice.

Her practice is diverse and stems from her BA and MFA studies in Tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art which gave her multi-disciplinary view to creating art.

Since then she has been developing and expanding her knowledge and experience as a teaching artist, through formal and informal training.

Lou has undertaken numerous residencies, set up her own consultancy Lou. Kin Art. She has initiated and hosted a lockdown educator support collective, mentored young artists, and worked with Galleries and Councils across Scotland.

What drives her is the concept that learning opens the possibility of ART to everyone.

 

Technical requirements for attendees

You can attend this training from anywhere using a compatible computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone connected to the internet.

Please note, some organisations have additional security settings that may prevent you from accessing the training on a work device. Please check that your organisation permits access to Zoom. If they don’t provide access, we encourage you to use a personal device, if possible, as we are unable to provide refunds when there are issues with participants’ IT which prevent them from accessing a training session.

 

Refund Policy

If you are unable to attend the training for any reason the training fee will still apply. As a not-for-profit charity, Engage needs to ensure that we cover the running costs of delivering training, which means that we are unable to reimburse attendees if they are unable to participate in a training session.
