Workshop and Dinner for all participants 25 October 2.30pm – 8.00pm

Day One (Tuesday 17 October for commissioners or Wednesday 18 October for artists): A one-day workshop led by Art School Instructors. This day will involve presentations of case studies, an alternative tour of Plymouth and a practical exercise developing a brief and proposals for a commission.

Day Two (Wednesday 25 October for all participants): An afternoon workshop in the format of a discussion and dinner. This will be a chance to share needs and concerns over the commissioning of art. It will also offer an opportunity to consider the practical implications of taking these ideas into the workplace.
