Breathing Space: A Weekend Retreat For Artists

With Lucy Sollitt and Martha King

7 March - 8 March

As we move into Spring, Breathing Space: A Weekend Retreat For Artists has been designed to provide you with the space and time needed for you to pause and reflect on your practice, take stock of your current ways of working and begin sowing seeds for the year ahead.

Aimed at early to mid-career artists this weekend is an opportunity to:

  • define what your practice is
  • what you’re trying to achieve with your work
  • map out who your work is for
  • look at how you can reach these people
  • explore how to articulate your work
  • shape future goals
  • meet new people

Curator Lucy Sollitt and producer Martha King will facilitate this weekend to ensure you are able to make the most of your time and hopefully come away feeling refreshed and inspired.

Using a range of techniques including action learning, Clore Leadership exercises and participatory design methodologies Lucy and Martha will create a space for you to reflect, plan and meet one another.

Although the retreat is facilitated – it is up to you which activities you participate in. There will always be space for individual working as well as walking, stretching, dancing, dreaming, eating…

A continental breakfast is also included along with lunch, dinner and refreshments throughout your stay. Please select the WITH ACCOMMODATION ticket below should you like to stay with us.
