Galway is the next stop on the E.gress exhibition tour | Wednesday 1 June 2016
A series of events are presented in partnership with Galway Arts Centre
Galway Arts Centre | 3pm-5pm
47 Lower Dominick Street, Galway
Led by artist Marie Brett, co producer of the film E.gress, the national film tour and a recipient of considerable arts and collaboration awards. This workshop is aimed at artists already working within health, care and/or community settings (or with an interest to work in these settings in the future). The workshop will practically explore the questions of – what does it take to enable exciting and meaningful participatory practice within health/care/community contexts? What hinders this practice? and – What can be done to address this? All levels of experience are welcome.
This workshop is free but booking is essential as places are limited.
To book a place, please phone Galway Arts Centre (091) 565 886 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
