Connecting Communities & Culture

UPDATE 6 September 2021

Regrettably, with the ongoing COVID restrictions across Regional NSW, we will be postponing our Creative Recovery Training Program planned for October. We are currently in discussions with our partner, the Creative Recovery Network to determine a suitable date for early 2022.

We will be in contact with all registrants who will be given the option to hold onto their tickets until the new date is confirmed or receive a full refund.

Are you an artist/creative practitioner interested in working with communities affected by disaster?

Facilitated by Scotia Monkivitch (Creative Recovery Network), the Creative Recovery Training program offers training for those wish to work in communities that have been affected by disasters – in the immediate after-effect and then into the community’s recovery journey.

This training is pitched to those practitioners working across Arts, Community, Local Government, Emergency Services, Health, Education and other sectors associated with community disaster preparedness and recovery.

The training is an introduction level engagement to establish an understanding of the disaster context and trauma informed best practice in working with communities impacted by disaster.

The program consists of resources, conversations, reflections and learning about the development of creative recovery strategies – unpacking knowledge content, provocative scenario application, reflective tasks to assimilate and apply knowledge. Together we will build a tool kit of relevant resources, collegial connections and plans for ongoing peer support – the establishment of a community of practice.

Important: This is an intensive ‘Facilitator Training’ program and you will need to have experience working with diverse groups of people. This is not a program designed to produce your own artwork or receive art therapy within our structure; you are required to have a clear understanding of the difference between working as an artist and working as a facilitator in a creative setting.
