Join us at the Social Acton Lab, Preston and attend our workshop series designed around professional development in the community interest arts and culture industry. 

Are you interested in social action and events planning? Would you like the opportunity to develop your own project or work towards a project that is already on the move? Develop a raft of skills around creating community-focused projects 'for the social good' which utilise your passion and practice & have potential to impact globally. Through out the summer of 2019 the Social Action Lab will be delivering opportunities for skills and project development. 

With experienced workshop facilitators and limited group numbers you will have plenty of opportunity for 1 to 1 tuition to tailor the session to your own needs and interests. These are practical, interactive sessions with which you will have resources and tools to takeaway with you.
