ArTELIER timeline and schedule

artelier2The first year of the ArTELIER program runs from May 2018 – May 2019. During this period there will be at least eight face-to-face gatherings of artists charing practice, as well as numerous Zoom we-based meetings.

Each session contains:

• a visiting provocateur – each session we invite an expert to offer a provocation

• a hands-on session – this is a program about the arts, so we engage arts practice to share practice

• discussion and debate – talking and sharing is generally under-rated in a world driven by project delivery

• a pot-luck lunch – the participants bring something to share for lunch

• a writing-up of the learning of the day, together with other forms of documentation to publish on a website as part of developing a micro credentialled course for artists and educators.
