About the programme

Artistic Directors Lab is a half-day interactive workshop for creatives to gain a deeper understanding of the responsibilities of an Artistic Director beyond programming. 

The session is led by an Artistic Director (or Creative Director) of arts organisations.

Members are divided into 3 groups and each group is presented with a different task created by the guest Artistic Director. The groups have time to develop an idea before presenting it and receiving constructive feedback.

What will be covered?

You will be presented with a task such as ideas to resolve a problem, or developing a new project or creating a strategy for a specific endeavour. You will work in a small group and together you will present your ideas.

What will you need?

A device to access Zoom. A desktop will be required for the sake of Zoom breakout room activities and for worksheet tasks. A notepad and pen or writing device.
