Other Workshops

Artfare Essentials is our core intensive workshop on the principles and practices of community arts.

As well, we offer advanced and topic-specific workshops (Advanced Artfare), allowing artists to delve into special topics in more depth than we can cover in an introductory workshop. Examples include:

  • Oral History and Artmaking: creative approaches, ethical/aesthetic/ cultural questions, technical skills involved in gathering and expressing people’s stories
  • Project Perculator: developing actual projects to the next stage
  • Discipline-specific workshops: e.g. in directing, music creation and composition, choreography and dance, design and collaborative writing
  • Facilitation: guiding principles and practices and individual approaches to making art with people
  • Intercultural Collaboration: entering more deeply into issues of working across together ethnicity, age, class, ability, faith, gender, sexuality etc.
  • Workshops tailor made to suit the interests and needs of a specific partner, project or place.

Our workshops include a variety of learning modes, including:

  • presentations of relevant artistic projects and work;
  • consideration of critical questions and ideas;
  • practical skills-development activities;
  • hands-on creative explorations;
  • site visits to relevant projects or locations; and/or
  • take-home print and digital resources.

We also produce shorter workshops and seminars (2 – 4 hours) by Jumblies and guest presenters, and send staff and associates to present at relevant symposia and conferences.
