UNION: The Northern School for Creativity & Activism

Artlink Hull is a partner in UNION, a sector-based coaching programme for emerging community artists and social activists across the north of England.

Throughout 2019, a group of 20 diverse participants from across the north, selected from an open application process, will take part in training that will be a blended approach of critical thinking and practical learning including:

  • Five intensive weekend workshops during the year; all in different locations with differing themes and objectives. Participants are introduced to inspirational people and cutting edge work in each location. The April weekend is held here at Artlink in Hull.
  • Individual one-to-one coaching sessions for each participant at different points during the year to help define their own future pathways.
  • Recommendations for mentors, opportunities for work placements and training opportunities.
  • A virtual workspace to continue learning and communication throughout the year and beyond.

UNION is coordinated by Heads Together Productions with support from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council England.
