Social making is Postponed

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we have had to postpone Social Making 2020. We will release details of our rescheduled event as soon as we have them.

Social Learning

For Social Making 2020 we had intended to run a three day workshop in the lead up to the symposium, with a focus on how to run workshops and art courses; community arts fundraising; and crowdfunding. Due to the symposium cancellation because of COVID-19, we are moving some of these workshops online. These are available on a ‘pay what you can’ basis.
