Toolkit: How to facilitate workshops
Saturday, 25 March 2023
11am – 12.30 pm
Would you like to extend your practice and try your hand at running creative workshops but don’t know where to start?
Join Jane Thakoordin, participatory artist, who will guide you through the essentials of researching, delivering and evaluating workshops with both adult and children – planning sessions, managing expectations, providing the right materials and finishing on time! All these areas will be explored naturally and gently during the in-person session that will be in the form of a zine and collage making workshop.
All materials will be provided.
Jane Thakoordin is a participatory artist, which means that the work Jane creates is always in collaboration with others. Jane draws on her professional experiences as a mental health practitioner to link creativity and wellbeing. She works collaboratively with, amongst others, people seeking asylum, supporting individuals and co-creating work. One of the highlights of the recent Humankindness Project was radical kindness through gift creating that people seeking asylum were an essential part of. Jane is a founder/member of MIXED RAGE- a collective of artists of mixed heritages, who recently exhibited at MAC in Birmingham. A recipient of a THRIVE Research bursary, Jane is currently working with Universities and Youth projects to interrogate the language of mental health and wellbeing, using textiles and zine making as methods of engagement. www.janethakoordin.com
