How can we reflect on our shifting needs as creative practitioners? Join collaborative practice They Are Here to explore the role of diagrams in self-diagnosing your ecology of needs. In turn how could such diagnosis aid how you communicate what you specifically need from an organisation? How could organisations use diagrams to consider how they support their artist communities?
Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice. This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited.
