Creativity Works: How can we maintain our practice as socially-engaged artists? (Virtual Course)

Thu, 15/10/2020 - Thu, 22/10/2020
Join participatory artist and illustrator Ellie Shipman to explore the question: 'How can we maintain our practice as socially-engaged artists?' in this participatory virtual workshop over two sessions. 

Ellie will present her experience from her own socially-engaged practice, as well as sharing examples of new social practice springing up in response to COVID-19 and other remote participatory art projects to inspire and intrigue.


You will be invited to connect and create together through a live workshop challenge to develop your own (hypothetical) social project proposal in between the two workshops, and receive feedback and support from Ellie and fellow participants in the second session. 

The proposal will be yours to develop into a real project if you wish, or to act as a test bed to flesh out some new creative ideas.


This session is for artists interested in or already working with social practice, participatory and / or community projects. 


Ellie Shipman is a participatory artist and illustrator living in Bristol and working across the UK and internationally. Find out more at:
