Get creative and meet others working in Arts and Health in Bristol.
Bristol Arts and Health Forum are running a series of creative networking events. The events are open to anyone currently engaged in Arts and Health activities, or for those who want to get involved in the sector. So whether you are an arts and health practitioner, art consultant, artist or a health and social care professional these events are for you.
All of the evenings will be suitable for all levels of ability.
There will be four events in total and the second session will be:
To the Drawing Board
Are you a creative looking to meet commissioners? Or a commissioner looking to meet creatives?
Join artist Marcus Lanyon in a workshop to encourage creative match-making for projects, ideas and skills. Ideas will be created initially through drawing or writing in a fun and collaborative way. From here participants will make simple wax sculptures as a response to the collaborations, and finally, we will hold a Private View of our work to each other. Creativity and communication will be encouraged throughout and you’ll have the chance to freely network with a group of like-minded professionals.
No prior experience of drawing or sculpting is required – we’ll be using methods and approaches that you will already be familiar and comfortable with.
Participants will be asked to complete a short questionnaire before the workshop so we are able to see what skills and ideas are on offer or being sought from each other.
Other events to follow will be:
March– A workshop by Rodney Harris exploring materials in unconventional ways, including clay and fruit.
May – A workshop by Ali Brown called Urban Knitting – Aruba Stones, encouraging participants to create their own piece of knit graffiti and be part of a ‘knitiffi’ installation.
Anouk Mercier ran a creative networking event focusing on drawing.
