These sessions will consist of DIY (do it yourself) workshops from artists, producers and songwriters who will support you to develop skills, creative ideas and new music. There will also be a series of masterclasses during which visiting female artists will talk about their creative practice, work and experience as professional artists, as well as the opportunity to achieve Bronze Arts Award accreditation

Sessions will take place Thursdays, 5pm – 7pm, Via Zoom.

Sessions are free but ticketed, please book for each session you wish to attend.

"The aim of these sessions are Artist Development and to open up the participants to various areas of work within the creative industry. Also just to let you know that numbers have been slightly up and down this term due to final exams and revision happening, but we have 7 participants that come when they can. Some are also involved with our Both Sides Now residency alongside Brighter Sound and We Make Culture. The next few days of this residency, next month, participants will rehearse and perform for a recorded performance at Sage Gateshead Hall 2, alongside a tech/backstage/sound and lighting workshop with one of the tech team staff."
