‘Is This The Best It Can Be?’ Arts Improvement Toolkit and Workshop – 8 February

Artworks Scotland and Creative Scotland are pleased to host a workshop introducing their new toolkit for continual improvement in partnerships.

This FREE development day is for freelance artists, arts organisations and their partners to explore the nature of their collaboration: What is important to your project? What could be improved?

If you are working with a partner organisation from another sector and are interested in continual improvement then the ‘Is This The Best It Can Be?’ toolkit can help.

A workshop will be hosted at the Lighthouse, Glasgow on 8th February 2017 (10am til 4pm) for you and your partner organisation to use and explore this toolkit in the context of your artistic projects, programmes in participatory settings and in creative learning.

The toolkit is designed to be used across a partnership, including with participants to:

  • Explore and agree the nature of collaborations
  • Encourage and support curiosity, questioning and constructive criticism
  • Deepen reflection and give breadth to discussions
  • Promote a true sense of partnership between artists, partners and participants
  • Gather qualitative information about the project

The day will fully engage you in the toolkit and give you the opportunity to explore its potential in relation to your current and future collaborations. It will also be an opportunity to hear about how to apply for a grant of up to £1500 to pilot the toolkit within your project.

To find out more about the workshop, and to register your interest in attending, please see further details on the Creative Scotland Opportunities website. Please register your interest by Friday 13 January 2017 – if you’re based outwith Glasgow, it may be possible to reimburse your expenses to attend.

Please note that places are limited so if requests exceed demand places will be selected based on geographic, artform and context spread, and diversity within the projects.
