About the event

Do your art trail plans include...

Inviting neighbours to create artwork with you?

Delivering participative projects with community groups?

Co-creating artwork with local residents?

Collective creative activism? 

Embarking on new creative collaborations?

Running income generating workshops?

Join this 2 hour practical workshop to explore some of the opportunities, challenges, complexity and impact of centring care in your work. This workshop will support you to consider how you achieve your creative vision while scaling your offer around the complexity of your life. You'll connect with and learn from other art trail projects and artists through a series of creative and reflective prompts.

E17 Art Trail artists have a reputation for generous invitations.  Many invite neighbours and art trail visitors to co-create art projects together, to join as creative activists, and to try specialist workshops.  

Chloe Osborne is leading this workshop specially devised for art trail artists. 

Overview of the workshop

  • How does care manifest in your work with participants?

Exploring the balance of artist-led and participant-led approaches

> mapping practice through art trail case studies, exploring intention and impact

  • Sitting in the mess of it

Unpicking the complexity of radical care

> getting to the roots of what care means to/for you (and potential participants)

  • An investigation of tools for centring care

Doing the maintenance work

> moving towards a sustainable, values-led, adaptive practice

Chloe Osborne is an Artist and Creative Director with 20 years experience in the socially engaged arts sector.

She has built and nurtured a portfolio career, working at the intersection of arts, community and development.

She is the co-director of Project AWE (Artists With Elbows) which collaborates with a network of international artists, using creativity to connect people across chasms.

"To care is to disrupt! This workshop will fuel your practice with thinking, strategies and tools for disruption!"
