Mark from Mark Devereux Projects will lead ‘Which Way Now?’ an online short course designed to help you consider the future direction and opportunities for your arts practice. 

Taking into account the current climate, you will be looking at the questions that have arisen for you about navigating your career, exploring ways that you can continue to be creative with other external commitments (including caring for young children or other family members) and offer you the tools you need to create a route for a more confident and resilient future as an artist.

‘Which Way Now?’ is an interactive group-based short course, with a maximum of 15 people, which will be delivered online via the Zoom video platform delivered over 2 separate evenings. Mark will guide you through a series of practical questions and discussions, whilst offering personal and practical advice on developing key strategies and techniques to nurture your future practice and career.

This course is designed to give you the tools, strategies and focus that you need to sustain an ongoing arts career during a time of change and will help you assess your core values as well as ask questions about you and your practice.

You will create a new peer network and gain focused one-to-one mentoring support through a dedicated hour-long session with Mark, where you will have time to discuss the personal and confidential questions you may not be able to within a group environment. 

We have also set up a payment plan, so that you can spread the cost of the sessions over the next 3-12 months. You will find the option for doing this as you enter the checkout page.

Working with Deborah and Michael was such a pleasure. They understood the project from the beginning, what the needs of the makers and our audiences would be, and acted as thoughtful ambassadors for the project when we were not able to be there. Every aspect of the exhibition and events was facilitated in such a calm and confident manner, which made my job of coordinating a group of artists so much easier! The whole event became a pivotal moment for the project, bringing people together in a way I could never have anticipated, and which has altered my thinking about the future of the project. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.


The weekend I spent at Clayhill Arts was a very welcome change of scenery to my otherwise urban setting. I felt calmed yet invigorated by the surroundings, and the accommodation was beautifully tasteful and very homely. The main space is wonderfully considered and very versatile - an ideal space for creativity and dynamic discussion. I left on the Sunday feeling energised and inspired by the experience of staying at Clayhill.


As a singer it has been one of the best spaces to sing in with generous reverberation and acoustics.  It is a space which complemented the type of instruments I was working with and the songs.


I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed being at your venue. It is a lovely and inspiring artistic space. The food was fantastic, homely yet unusual. I really enjoyed the day.


As an artist retreat, the venue at Clayhill Arts provided a warm and welcoming environment, allowing a safe and constructive space where individuals creative needs can be met. 


We were lucky enough to be able to take over the whole venue for a weekend, using the Granary as our base for experimentation, discussion and shared learning. The informality of the accommodation, and the relaxed surroundings, put everyone at ease and offered a space where cooperation and encouragement evolved naturally.


Everything was wonderful! This is a beautiful place. Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay.


Clayhill feels remote which is great but it also is close to Cannington which has everything, so supplies can be bought without travelling a great distance...I also really enjoyed that it is still a working farm, because it feels productive and there is such a lot of life around us which is very inspiring
