for all creative souls in North Staffordshire.

3 enjoyable days of collaboration and activity that aim to establish a strong and diverse network of artistic people who want to be Barefoot Doctors - people who want to develop and share the skills they currently have, maybe learn some brand new skills and make positive and creative things happen in North Staffordshire.
Attendance on all full three days is preferred , but if that is difficult just let us know before hand and we'll try to be as flexible as possible to make it work for you.
Over the 3 days we will:
  • have a unique opportunity to develop our own arts practice and community skills
  • learn from the skills and experiences of other people in the group
  • celebrate our strengths and recognise our weaker skills
  • feel relaxed to share our time and knowledge to develop others
  • work collectively in a bigger project
  • put our creativity to good use
  • learn something about ourselves
  • have fun!
These 3 days of participation and conversation will involve practical and enjoyable activities, dialogue and creative tasks with people of all skill levels and backgrounds. We will have fun and work in a relaxed and artistic atmosphere, with some outdoor exploration in the town centre.
Remember - it's for all current arts leaders ,budding artists and performers of the future,who are interested in visual arts, performing arts , new media arts, at any level of confidence and experience.
