Part of Reboot, our artist development programme.

Expanding your skill set to include workshop delivery and engagement projects is a great way for you to earn money, develop your practice and most importantly work with a diverse range of people.

This workshop is aimed at artists of any discipline who wish to develop their skills and knowledge of delivering community programmes and will explore the best practice of working alongside vulnerable people in the community.

Led by musicians & music therapists from Manchester Camerata, this workshop will discuss the potential aims, approaches and outcomes of working with vulnerable people in the community, with particular reference to people living with dementia. You will explore how it feels to deliver a session, reflecting on the effects that this can have on your own wellbeing. You will also explore how it feels to take part in a session and the potential outcomes for participants, both during the session and over the course of a long term project.

Manchester Camerata’s community programme uses music as a tool to encourage people to express themselves, communicate with others and develop new skills. Participants create new pieces on every project alongside a range of artists including musicians, music therapists, theatre makers, visual artists and producers.
