Co-creating approaches - Thriving in new conditions at work

Brilliant opportunity to apply to join us for the first Slate workshop!

This five-day workshop is a chance for artists to explore what happens when creative, bright people are brought together and ideas and approaches collide. You will be encouraged to consider, and to try out, what it takes to forge a new piece of work, a community, connections, and different ways of making together.

Artists will be paid to attend and expenses will be covered by Slate.
