Strike A Light create social change through extraordinary performance events, creative projects with communities and participation opportunities for young people. We work with communities across Gloucester and exceptional artists to co-create cultural programmes which are relevant and diverse. We want to see a world where there are no barriers for anyone to take part in, attend, enjoy or create culture, with artists and communities at the heart of it.
Online video chat - this is a chance to discuss the content of the videos, to meet the cohort, and to share any learning you may wish to. This is limited to 12 participants and will be from 3-5pm Weds 20 January. If we have significant interest beyond this number, we may be able to book another group session.
Who is this for?
Creative practitioners developing projects for the first time or interested in working in new ways, community arts practitioners looking at developing their project management work or established creatives who wish to take the opportunity presented by the current situation to explore a new way of working.
SOME EXPERIENCE NECESSARY – to get the most from this workshop, you will need to have either some initial ideas for arts or community projects you wish to develop, or have an emerging or established creative or community practice.
Take A Part are experts in socially engaged audience development for contemporary art. Based in Plymouth, we work in areas that have been historically underserved and don’t usually engage in the arts. Our long-term, embedded process starts with listening and supporting communities to set agendas for projects that reflect and address community need and diversity. Our genuine processes with communities leads us to co-commissioning exceptional national and international artists in those communities. We embed contemporary arts practice in the process of regeneration. Crucially, the process of creating the work itself is as important as what is created. Our purpose is to engage, educate and inform new audiences in contemporary arts while developing policy and setting agendas for neighbourhood regeneration initiatives in Plymouth. Take A Part’s work contributes directly to the social infrastructure of the city.
