With: Sally Hughes and Iwan Brioc, The Republic of the Imagination

You are warmly invited to take part in The Art of Looking at Ourselves this autumn, in the beautiful setting of St Donat's Arts Centre in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

The weekend offers an introduction to the Context Oriented Arts (CoArts) method developed by Iwan Brioc from The Republic of the Imagination.

During the workshop, you will enjoy a range of art and image making, movement and mindfulness activities through which you develop your own 'sensory portal', a site-specific installation.

The weekend culminates in a performance, where you invite friends and family to experience journeying through the sensory portals you have co-created.

Please see more information about the weekend in our brochure.

Book your place.
