GEM Intermediate Course: Creative Collaborations 2018

Friday 12 October 2018 / Monday 19 November 2018


One Day Seminar/Conference


Participatory work with artists and creative practitioners in heritage settings

Liverpool: 12 October 2018, 10.00 – 16.30, International Slavery Museum
London: 19 November 2018, 10.00 – 16.30, British Library

Want to increase your understanding and generate ideas in creative collaborations? Then this course is for you!
This course provides the opportunity to explore the creative potential of your collection or historic site and prepare for delivering creative projects in partnership with artists and creative practitioners. We will explore challenges and examples of best practice to generate ideas and solutions, developing confidence in working with artists and plans for future projects.

This course is aimed at mid-career professionals with responsibility for planning, delivering or managing learning programmes across the heritage sector.  It is most suited to those who have already done some work with artists in heritage settings, especially those looking for ways to improve or build upon their practice. However, it is also valuable to anyone who has yet to work with artists and is looking to gain the confidence to start.

The course will combine a one-day workshop with personal work and ongoing peer discussion to give you the most beneficial learning experience possible. The one-day workshop will be a mix of discussion and sharing of perspectives/experiences, practical working in small groups and some presentation of theory and case studies by the course director. It will also include a “creative ideas incubator” session and facilitate the building of a peer group to support you through the follow up activity. This will lead to the post-workshop activity; producing a plan for project with an artist.
