A series of workshops designed with members for members! These monthly workshops are an open space for Members of all ages and stages to connect with others, explore different aspects of creative practice and get inspired. Sessions will vary month to month and may include:

ARTIST MASTERCLASSES – These sessions will introduce Members to guest Artists connected to Cardboard Citizens to share their practice and experience of working in the industry
INDUSTRY Q&As – These sessions will invited industry professionals to talk about their work and journeys, connecting them to our Members through Zoom
MEMBERS’ CREATIVE SPACE – These sessions will provide Members the space to try out new creative ideas and hold artistic focus groups through both Zoom and in-person

This strand of our programme is co-created with Members so let us know if you have an idea of what you would like to see take place here or if you would like to deliver something yourself. Contact us by email on bonny@cardboardcitizens.org.uk if you have an idea you would like to contribute.

MEMBERS’ CHECK-IN – In between monthly sessions, Members are also invited to facilitate their own Member-Led Check-In via Zoom or face-to-face (space depending). If you would like to run a session please contact us by email on bonny@cardboardcitizens.org.uk for more details.

Session Details and Booking Options

June

Resolve Collective Resolve Collective 2

ARTIST MASTERCLASS with RESOLVE Collective
Friday 10 June, 5pm – 7pm (Cardboard Citizens HQ)

RESOLVE Collective will host an emotional mapping workshop that builds on a commonly used methodology to understand people’s relationship to their local area, through stories, feelings, and connections to these places. The workshops will be adapted to focus on the journeys of participants, highlighting and dwelling on overlapping encounters, moments of contestation, and celebration. The series of workshops is part of RESOLVE Collective’s collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery where they are looking at Angel Alley and understanding the potential for creative intervention to address some of the Alley’s current challenges.

Participants are not required to have direct experience of Angel Alley, or Whitechapel, we are interested in talking to people who have experience in East London and who’s journeys, and encounters have taken them across the city. RESOLVE Collective‘s exercise is a way using the experiences of the Cardboard Citizens group to better formulate our strategy for the alley way, acknowledging the uniqueness of each experience but understanding the common threads that may positively influence our strategy moving forward.
