As professional artist educators working in Norfolk / Suffolk we – Kaitlin Ferguson & Genevieve Rudd – have found working in the industry can sometimes feel isolating due to the often ad hoc and precarious nature of the work, so in late 2019, we put together a network for freelance practitioners.
If you are an Artist delivering creative workshops with communities, in schools, galleries, museums or with groups of any age, then you are welcome to join us. You may define yourself as a Community Artist, Artist Educator, Artist Facilitator, Arts Practitioner or Socially Engaged Artist.
The meet-ups will be a relaxed chance to share experiences and best practice, develop skills, connect with local practitioners, share opportunities and develop a supportive network.
