Creative Leicestershire Training for Artists

Creative Leicestershire are glad to announce that applications for our training programme for artists working in healthcare settings are now open.

We are working with Willis Newson and Beauty and Utility Arts to deliver a programme of training sessions for artists working in healthcare settings.

The programme consists of 4 days of tailored training for artists with experience of running participatory arts projects in community or education settings, who wish to extend their practice into health, or for artists with experience of working in health settings who want to improve their skills and extend their knowledge.

  • Day One: The Context for Arts and Health: research, policy and practice
  • Day Two: Safe and Ethical Practice within Arts and Health
  • Day Three: Leading effective arts projects in health and social care settings
  • Day Four: Marketing and Presentation Skills: Bringing your arts and health project to life

The programme also provides mentoring and placement opportunities with Beauty and Utility Arts.

At the end of the programme there will be a sharing day enabling the artists to promote their practice to a wider network of potential commissioners and collaborators.

If you would like to book, please email Lucia Masundire at by Thursday 11th April.
