Lawrie Crawford & Karilynn Thompson

Narrative Wellbeing For Artists: Exploring Identity Through Writing (Artists’ Health Alliance)

“The role of writing in promoting wellbeing is an emerging field in personal and professional development. In this workshop, we will use writing exercises as an avenue to promote reflection, self-expression and insight into our professional identities as artists.

Writing is a creative and versatile medium to explore who we are and where we’re going as artists. The facilitator will cultivate a supportive and collaborative atmosphere for participants to reflect, write and discuss. Through structured exercises and discussions, we will explore our artistic identities and journeys. The link between writing and well-being will be emphasized.

This workshop is open to all artists. No writing experience needed!

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the concept of professional identity & explore your own as an artist
  • Strengthen the connection between your artistic identity and your wellbeing
  • Develop the capacity to use writing as a tool for wellbeing

Please Note

  • This is not a creative writing workshop. Participants will discuss – not critique – each other’s writing
  • Please bring something to write with and something to write on, like your favorite notebook

Facilitator

Karen Gold, MSW, PhD facilitates workshops on creative writing, narrative medicine, and communication skills. As a visual artist she is drawn to printmaking, collage and, most recently, contemplative photography.

Evaluation and Report Writing Workshop (ArtReach Toronto)

“Evaluation and Report Writing Workshop
27 June 2017 (NEXT TUESDAY!)

Are you running an ArtReach or other community based project or program in your community? Do you want to better understand the reasons for and basics of evaluating your program? Wondering about the best ways to plan your evaluation activities to generate statistics and feedback about the effectiveness and success of your work? Want tips on how to write a great report?

Evaluation is an important, but sometimes overlooked part of our work in communities. Surveys, stories, art-based activities, and statistics are just some of the powerful evaluation tools we can use to measure the impacts of what we do. Used correctly, they demonstrate the benefits of our work to our communities, funders, and donors and help us better shape our programs into the future.

In this interactive workshop we will examine the process of evaluation and report writing using live case study examples of real community, youth-led projects. The workshop will explore creative strategies and tools for collecting the right data and sharing it with others and also demonstrate step by step how to use them to develop an evaluation plan through the live case studies.

Workshop participants will look into different ways of measuring the impacts and successes of their own programs using strategies which include theory of change, and using outcomes, outputs and indicators, all while learning to create effective evaluation tools.

Finally participants will be taken step by step through the report writing process using the ArtReach final report template as a guideline.

Due to the nature of interactive activities that participants will be taking part in, this workshop is ideal for ArtReach Grantees preparing for final reports or other individuals who are currently working on community-based projects who want to know more about evaluation and report writing.

FACILITATOR
Fiona Scott- independent research and evaluation consultant
