Adverse Camber and Junction Arts are excited to present:
Who Knows: Creative Facilitation Masterclass with Deanna Rodger
A 2-day masterclass aimed at storytelling creatives who want to turn their creative practice into workshops and facilitation. With a particular focus on working with young people.
Sat 14 – Sun 15 May 2022 at West Studios in Chesterfield.
£30 for both days. There are 3 x subsidised places at £15 for Derbyshire residents.
As creatives we love what we do, it’s our passion and often our life’s purpose but sometimes it is at odds with the demands of earning an income.
Who Knows: Facilitation aims to address this. How can we turn our creative practice into workshops? What needs to be considered and prepped for facilitating confidently and effectively?
This facilitation training is aimed at creatives who want to turn what they do into a facilitation practice.
Over the course of 2 days you will:
- Discover what lies at the heart of your practice
- Try out facilitating and co-facilitating techniques, and experiment with a range of exercises
- Explore practical considerations of designing, delivering and de-briefing workshops
This course is suitable for experienced artists and practitioners working in storytelling across a range of disciplines (e.g. storytellers, poets, performers etc), who wish to develop and extend their skills and confidence in facilitating and co-facilitating creative workshops, with a focus on working with young people.
This is a space where we can ask questions and share advice on best practices.
Deanna Rodger is a leading poet in the UK. In 2021, her reimagined version of If was read by Serena Williams.
