What is this workshop about?
This Radar session focuses on listening and feedback, two cornerstones of the artistic process. The workshop will offer practical tools to use in a team of people, supporting a sense of compassion and understanding. Using tools from conscious listening and different feedback methods, this active workshop will lay the groundwork for feedback rich environments in the creative process. In small groups we’ll practice a series of exercises that strengthen your ability to give and receive feedback without drama, and offer tools for creative collaboration in artistic practice. We’ll also look at your own personal feedback style and develop strategies to communicate that with collaborators.

Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is for artists and arts workers at any stage of their career who want to learn techniques and tools for collaboration.

My name is Michael, and I use he/him pronouns. I am a white, queer person who has done lots of different jobs in the arts and creative world. I’ve made my own performance and theatre work, I’ve collaborated with others, I’ve worked for others as an artist, I’ve produced projects, I’ve been a dramaturg on dance, theatre and performance projects and I’ve also written critical texts about art and arts organisations. These days most of my work is in leadership coaching, facilitation and teaching the Enneagram. My work has taken place in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and the United States. I am currently a Creative Support Associate with Artsadmin, and before that I worked for 3 years as an Artist Support Programme Producer at Artsadmin.
