This series of workshops will focus on creating and developing your new performance and/or visual art piece. The first two days will cover an overview of our collective arts practices. This can help define for yourself and others the way you work. Understanding how we reach our final art pieces, examining process and learning about how others work can inform our practice to help us achieve greater success. We can then move to the development of our own pieces, assist each other and use this time to workshop our ideas in a group setting. This opportunity is ideal as working together collectively will give us immediate feedback and allow us to gather more resources more quickly. You can leave this workshop with a better understanding of the way you work and the best practices of others and perhaps leave with a new work or the development of a significant idea.

This workshop is online, using the Zoom platform. There will be discussions and visual sharing. The work will be done individually and in groups.
