About this EventJoin one of our expert trainers and up to ten other aspiring Artsmark settings for an interactive support session using Zoom video conferencing.
This session is for those that would like further support on how to plan the activities, outcomes, and evaluation of their Artsmark journey, by using a Planning Model template. Taking a step by step approach, this session will show you how the planning model can help you to clearly plot out your Statement of Commitment action plan, and how this can lead to your desired short, medium and long-term outcomes. This in turn will support evaluation and the measuring of impact for completion of your Statement of Impact. You will gain advice and guidance from an experienced trainer throughout, whilst sharing ideas with your peers from other settings.
We offer these sessions as part of our support offer to schools and education settings on their Artsmark journeys. This is an optional opportunity that needs to be booked in advance.
We will provide you with a Zoom login link in time for the session, which will be free for you to use. You do not need to have a Zoom account. You will need access to a computer or smartphone that has video capabilities.
Join us this half term!
We know that this October half term will be even harder than usual to keep the whole family occupied - especially with the weather looking a little dreary.
With this in mind, we have worked with Towner International artist Rita Evans on a series of free hands-on creative workshops for the whole family which can be enjoyed in a Covid-secure environment. We’ve also got family film screenings and a great kid's menu in our cafe.
Family Film: Away
Wednesday 28 October, 11.00am & 3.00pm
Friday 30 October, 11.00am & 3.00pm
After a mysterious crash landing, a young boy wakes up alone on an exotic island. He’s being chased by a dark spirit, although it’s unclear whether the spirit means to help or harm the boy. Suitable for all ages, the story, told without dialogue over a series of breath-taking backgrounds, is equally inspired by reality, dreams, and waking fantasies. An utterly charming and beautifully animated feature film. Tickets to these special family screenings are only £5.
