The Faculty is an alternative learning space for practitioners working at the intersection of arts and social transformation led by Chrissie Tiller (Power Up) and Kerry Morrison (Socio-ecological artist and In-Situ co-founder).
In 2021, The Faculty North will provide the opportunity for 31 people to develop their ideas and discuss experience in a collaborative setting.
Considering the political, the social, the economic and the environmental with a care-full approach, this programme employs arts-based methods of learning and exploration.
Along with our partner's Heart of Glass, we invited applications from individuals to join the second iteration* of The Faculty.
This programme will be delivered online due to COVID-19. It will cover Context and History, Practice and Skills, Ethics, Ethos and Politics, Planning and Presenting a Project, Self-care and Survival.
All sessions are recorded, transcribed, and made available for participants to watch back later.
Introductory sessions, group tutorials, optional ‘homework’, and a virtual interactive platform for everyone to collaborate, reflect and share ideas. There will be eight online sessions (usually Tuesday mornings, 1.5 to 2 hours each)
Because of COVID-19 restrictions we have taken the difficult decision to limit the geographical scope of participants to the North of England and people who identify with being Northern.
We are anticipating that we will follow this Faculty round with a second, UK wide round, later in 2021.
Supporting creative practice and well-being.
The online Northern Faculty of Social Art Practice aims to support creative practice and well-being, offering its students space and time to share experiences, reflect on practice, and exchange ideas with colleagues and peers, particularly during a global pandemic that has affected all of our lives.
To support this aim, each student will receive a bursary of £500 to attend.
