Description

REBIRTH: an Artist Educator Professional Development Training

"How to honour your calling and define your purpose as an Artist Educator & Community Facilitator"

DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING

This all-day training is for emerging and established Artist Educators and Community Facilitators who are in a time of transition or re-birth in their lives and/or work. If you are seeking a revived sense of direction and purpose in your work in the Community Arts sector, this training is for you. Ideal for artists and educators who believe in the power of personal and collective transformation by engaging with social justice, healing, and education through the arts, and who feel called to work with marginalized sections of society.

The training will be grounded in the pedagogy and methodology of Purpose Driven Education and its 4 core elements:

  • IDENTITY & PURPOSE: understanding your own identity and purpose, as well as grounding in the role it plays in your work as an Artist Educator & Community Facilitator.

  • WELL-BEING: understanding the importance of self-care and self-love in maintaining a healthy state of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being as an Artist Educator and community leader; understanding that the well-being of the collective is dependant on that of the individuals who create it.

  • EQUITY & SOCIAL JUSTICE: understanding the real meaning and implications of Equity and Social Justice and how to apply it on the ground (not just using the language, but actually putting it into practice with integrity).

  • CREATIVITY & THE ARTS: understanding the power of creativity and the arts in community building, organizing, and creating inspiring learning environments. Sharing arts-based tools for engaging in meaningful workshop facilitation.

Also included in training:

  • Useful tips and skills for effective grant writing

  • Grounded advice for building lasting partnerships with schools and community organizations

  • Holistic overview on understanding the community arts sector and how it functions as an industry
