UNION 2019 was our pilot project; taking on a cohort of 20 emerging artists and activists and developing a programme of work over a year, a blended approach of critical thinking and practical learning including:
- Five intensive weekend workshops during the year; all in different locations (Leeds, Hull, Manchester, Newcastle and Barnsley) with differing themes and objectives. You will be introduced to inspirational people and cutting edge work in each location.
- Individual one-to-one coaching sessions for each participant at different points during the year to help you define their own future pathways.
- Recommendations for mentors, opportunities for work placements and training opportunities.
- A virtual workspace to continue learning and communication throughout the year and beyond.
You can see the full evaluation of the 2019 programme here and have a listen to some of the participants reflections (and images of their own reflective journals) from our final programme weekend in Barnsley in January 2020.
