Arts Well: Grow – New June dates

Arts Well have announced new June dates for their popular and well-received series of online professional development workshops – GROW

Arts Well have announced new June dates for their popular and well-received series of online professional development workshops. The programme is aimed at practitioners working in the space of creativity, culture, health and wellbeing and are designed with an emphasis on being able to put your learning into practice.

Each workshop is a stand-alone session, so you can book for just one, but many people attend the full programme.

At just two and a half hours long, including a break, the sessions recognise the need to reduce screen fatigue and allow time for discussion and questions throughout. Bookings are now open – click on the links below.

Arts Well recognises the very different circumstances that people are facing, especially as a consequence of this pandemic, so the workshops are available at 3 different price points –

£25 is the standard price; £15 concessionary or a donation for those who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Please pay the appropriate price for your circumstances, acknowledging that Arts Well is a small not-for-profit organisation that relies on this trading income to deliver its activities.

All sessions run from 10.00 a.m to 12.30 p.m.
