The Faculty was a unique, free learning and professional development opportunity for artists and creatives.
The six-month pilot programme revisited the notion of the formal learning environment.
In partnership with our fellow Creative People and Places projects Super Slow Way (Pennine Lancashire), Creative Scene (Kirklees) and LeftCoast (Blackpool), delivered by In Situ and Chrissie Tiller, this is an opportunity for 26 people who were passionate about socially engaged arts practice, recruited through an open call process in each of our geographic areas.
Twenty six curious, forward-looking and open minded individuals had the opportunity to take part in this unique learning experience which enabled them to build and share the knowledge of working in the field of social arts practice.
The course leaders Chrissie Tiller and In Situ took participants on a series of residential weekends, delivered a series of online distance learning tutorials, seminars, discussions and assignments. This included making artwork, using audio or visual media, or written materials.
