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 provided 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, the programme employed arts-based methods of learning and exploration.

Reflections on The Faculty North by Grace Collins

Along with our partner's Heart of Glass, we invited applications from individuals to join the second iteration* of The Faculty.

This programme was delivered online due to COVID-19. It covered Context and History, Practice and Skills, Ethics, Ethos and Politics, Planning and Presenting a Project, Self-care and Survival.

 

All sessions were recorded, transcribed, and made available for participants to watch back later.

During the course, resources shared included introductory sessions, group tutorials, optional ‘homework’, and a virtual interactive platform for everyone to collaborate, reflect and share ideas. There was eight online sessions (usually Tuesday mornings, 1.5 to 2 hours each). 

Supporting creative practice and well-being.

The online Northern Faculty of Social Art Practice aimed 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 received a bursary of £500 to attend.

COVID-19

Because of COVID-19 restrictions we took the difficult decision to limit the geographical scope of participants to the North of England and people who identify with being Northern.
