Who can participate in the workshop?

This workshop is for individuals from all mediums who want to reconnect with their creative practice; whether that’s music, writing, performance, or indeed photography. We strongly encourage those who are still trying to figure out what, exactly, their creative practice is to apply - just as much as we encourage experienced professionals looking to expand or overcome boundaries in their practice. There is no single type of person that this course has been designed for. All that is required is a willingness to be brave and show up.


We are located in the heart of the Dartington Estate: 1,200 acres of beautiful woodlands and meadows with the River Dart running through. The estate is also home to charities working in the arts, environment, and for social justice. There is a pub and café onsite. Everything else is a forty- minute walk away. We will be working within the estate throughout the course.
