Whether you're looking to brush up on existing skills or learn something from scratch, our online learning sessions are here to help. 

We know how much knowledge and experience there is within community arts groups, and we want to help share that through peer-to-peer learning. So we've put together a series of online learning events which feature both experts in that particular field, plus real lived experience from representatives of creative groups.

Each session will last 90 minutes on Zoom, with a brief exercise in a breakout room and time for questions at the end. The sessions will be recorded, so you can have access to them afterwards, too.

As we want to make the events as accessible as possible, we have subsidised them heavily. 

These learning events are designed for anyone involved with voluntary, amateur or community-based creative groups.
