Bryony Kimmings teaches all over the UK. Her aim is to dispel the myths surrounding the “difficulty” of being an artist, whether that be in a creative or economic way.
Her workshops are light, fun, painless and very active. They concern themselves with establishing both an excellent concept for a piece of work and a clear audience intention.
This November she will be running a week-long playwriting workshop for those wishing to write a new piece of work, but struggling with where to start.
In their words: “If you are about to make a new piece of work, are looking for inspiration or need to take a bit of a break to go back to the roots of your art passion then this is the week for you.
A carefully selected group of people will delve deep for a week of love, action, politicisation and conversation. I will touch on individuality, concept, style, creating new material and dreaming big as well as how to write about your work, how to brand yourself, how to engage with your audience, possible wrap around activity for your practice and getting your work noticed by producers, promoters and press.
If you feel you need an overhaul in direction, if you feel your degree never actually taught you how to be an artist or you just need the time and space to discuss, write and cry with a group of strangers then join me in November!”
Course dates: 27th November – 1st December, 10am-4pm Monday – Friday
