Our Next Networking & Support Lunch

On October 27th, our next Networking & Support Lunch, Dr. Anni Raw will be conducting sharing with us her research and practice concerning  'Workshop Ecology' , drawing on her extensive research with participatory artists in health settings in UK and Mexico.

Dr. Anni Raw

Starting with the question "So, what is it that you do, and how, exactly, do you do it?" she will explore with us dimensions such as intuition, workshop space, personal commitment, and the ‘creative key’ - i.e. practitioners’ work with creative activities and processes.

Do come along with a colleague or friend, or pass this invite on to anyone you think may benefit.

The details:
Tuesday 27th October, 12pm - 2pm
Room 233, David Puttnam Media Centre,
