Call for Artists – REFLECT Lab Co-mentoring Opportunity in Collaborative Arts and Health with Children and Young People (Northwest Region, February 2011 – December 2011)
REFLECT Lab will aim to develop skills, confidence, and knowledge by bringing artists and healthcare workers together in co-mentoring pairs. People taking part are given the opportunity to pause, reflect, reconnect, and reappraise their professional practice from a new perspective.
Previous co-mentors have shared values, explored different points of view, and re-focused their work with children and young people as a direct consequence of exploring their own creative practice. REFLECT Lab co-mentoring is a dynamic, collaborative learning process for people across sectors, developed by The Sage Gateshead (UK).
If you are an artist of any discipline (theatre/music/ visual/literary/dance/ circus etc) working with children and young people in the Northwest (Sligo/Leitrim/Donegal) and would like to participate in this professional development programme with healthcare workers from Feb 2011 – December 2011, please contact Helium for further information and an application form: firstname.lastname@example.org .
DEADLINE: Wednesday, January 26, 2011.
Commitment is aprox 8 days within this time-frame and there is no fee for this course.
