After attending the ETU campaign planning course – focus group – with brief media skillshare by Van Badham, I am excited! Now hoping to go to this:
Rhizome: The September Edition is a free Symposium of Community Arts and Cultural Development Facilitation Skills. It is open to participation by anyone involved in arts, cultural or community work, whether you are currently facilitating ‘development type’ outcomes or just interested in moving your work in this direction.
The event is open to both experienced and emerging practitioners interested in developing more arts, cultural and community development skills through their work. It’s important to note that the types of skills participants will learn and share are not only applicable to the external work we do with communities and groups, they are also relevant to and useful for the way we participate in teams, organisations and even within our friend and collaborator networks.
The event’s activities are designed to assist facilitators expand, build and strengthen their practice. This one day skill sharing and networking event encourages participants to share community arts and cultural development facilitation practices by inviting and inspiring innovation and learning from others, in an open space environment.
