Heart of Glass and In-Situ are inviting applications from individuals to join our second iteration of The Faculty - an alternative learning space for practitioners working at the intersection of arts and social transformation.

20 x £500 are bursaries available for successful applicants

Led by Chrissie Tiller (Power Up) and Kerry Morrison (In Situ co-founder and artist) and running from 12th January 2021 – 23rd March 2021. Up to 20 places are available for The Faculty of Social Practice (online).

Are you:

Engaged – with social practice in some way?

Motivated – about your practice and learning and sharing?

Open - to arts-based approaches to learning, engagement and conversation?

Aware – politically, socially, economically, ethically, environmentally?

Collaborative – able to share and contribute as part of a group or team?

Applications are invited from artists, curators, creative producers and those from connected disciplines.

Because of Covid-19 restrictions we have taken the difficult decision to limit the geographical scope of participants to the North of England and people who identify with being Northern.
