Description

FIRE UP
Ignite your creative career
A series of professional development sessions for artists and creatives in and around Burnley.

Next Steps – an open forum discussion

With Rachel Hawthorn and the Creative Alliance Steering Group

Friday 23rd February 2018

10am – 4pm

A full day to reflect on and share with others what you have learnt through attending one or more of the Fire Up workshops. What are your next steps? What are you now putting into action to further your career as an artist? There will be facilitated time for reflection on your own practice and discussion as a group about the Creative Alliance and our potential next steps as a collective.

Workshop leader profile:

As Burnley Leisure’s Arts Engagement Officer, Rachel Hawthorn has been coordinating the Creative Alliance for the past 9 years. In early 2017 a steering group was formed, and we have been having enjoyable and interesting meetings ever since on a regular basis. We have already been successful in gaining funding from Arts Council England to produce this series of professional development workshops, and to redevelop the exhibition spaces at Burnley Mechanics. The Steering Group have also been working together on a number of commissioned and self-initiated projects including the 2017 Town Centre Light Parade. Among many other ideas and plans, we hope to establish a regular group exhibition for Burnley artists. The Creative Alliance is an open and inclusive group who feel that now is the time for making more and better art happen in Burnley. www.facebook.com/groups/burnleycreativealliance
