Built on the concept that mentoring and advice occurs when emerging artists approach established artists ‘for a brew’, four years ago we flipped this by inviting artists into our office for an hour of free advice.
Around four times a year we fill up the kettle, stock up on biscuits and offer peer support and learning opportunities for artists. This September, we’re running a series of free and pay-what-you-can online workshops, panels and advice sessions online and in-person.
Tuesday 12th September, 6pm – 7.30pm
Online via Zoom (BSL interpretation available, please email us before September 1st)
This workshop is run by our Co-Creative Director, Rachel Moorhouse, who has over a decade of experience in marketing and audience development. Working with independent artists, festivals and leading cultural organisations, Rachel has connected audiences to a variety cultural experiences from theatre to music, cabaret to comedy, live art to spoken word. Rachel was the Audience Development Officer at Contact Theatre, Manchester and leads Art with Heart’s audience development from strategy to grassroots connections.
