The PPD (Personal and Professional Development) talk on January 18th at Dulwich Library was on writing funding applications, and a lot of SLWA members and friends were present. Speaker Edward Birch from Southwark Arts Forum was friendly, relaxed, informative and helpful.
Edward works part-time for Southwark Arts Forum (SAF) and explained how the organisation was there to help artists. SAF has a website, http://www.southwarkartsforum.org, and aims to help members by providing online information and networking opportunities. For a relatively small fee it’s also possible to have one-to-one business advice or professional development sessions.
Edward talked about the essential skills needed when applying for funding.

At Westminster Adult Education Service students/artists have been exploring their own creativity in relation to colour and its application. They enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in which ideas, experiments and experience is shared. Drawing skills are also taught and developed, using a variety of media.
My new work is informed by the colour theory I’m teaching at WAES. Sometimes it’s good to re-fresh skills and gain inspiration.

Would any members be interested in the ‘Dynamics of Colour’, Visual Arts course?
From 13th January 2010, duration; 10 weeks. Sessions are from 10.00am-1.00pm on Wednesday mornings.

Brixton Artist Space

Brixton Market has space available for Artists – free!

Come along on Tuesday, to a meeting, if you can.  This will be the best
way to find out about the practicalities of using one of the spaces
and whether it would be suited to your project. We are looking for a
really broad mix of projects, so we’re open to all kinds of proposals.
Where appropriate, we’ll also be helping match up projects that could
share a space effectively.

Following Tuesday night, we’ll be asking people to submit proposals
within seven days – and we’ll be talking to applicants and selecting
the first wave of projects soon afterwards, with the aim of people
setting up shop as soon as late November. (more…)

Reminder: Monday December 7th –  Angela Schütz

At this busy time of year, as we prepare for the Christmas break – traditionally a time of activity followed by a period of reflection – we welcome your attendance to hear our third speaker Angela Schütz, who will be asking us to examine the creative process itself.


Angela Schütz, a practising artist and psychosynthesis counsellor will present a psycho-spiritual view of creativity and the creative block. Using examples from her own artwork she will be sharing her personal experience as well as inviting us to reflect on our own art practice and to gain a deeper insight into the creative process and what makes it flow.

“Creativity is being in the world soulfully, for the only thing we truly make, whether in the arts, in culture or at home, is soul.”
Thomas Moore

Looking forward to January: on Monday 18th Edward Birch of the Southwark Arts Forum will start our SLWA year off by encouraging us to get out of our studios and work places and reap the benefits of networking. Also, gleaned from time spent at the Arts Council, Edward will give his top tips for making succesful funding appliactions.

We look forward to seeing lots of members and friends at these talks.

Best wishes,

Laura and Liz
