The Im4theArts Winter School was a response to members’ needs for capacity-building. This pilot event ran from Monday 22 to Wednesday 24 June 2020 offering 12 short courses of 270 minutes, divided into three sessions of 90 minutes on three consecutive days.
The early mornings were devoted to introductions to the creative industries in each discipline and run concurrently, while later courses were cross-cutting and apply to all disciplines.
Each course had a facilitator who planned the course and hosted it, with some courses having the facilitators as the lead presenters, and others using a variety of presenters. They were intended to be as practical as possible to offer participants useful information to improve their work within the sector.
The courses were free and were available only to members of Im4theArts. The courses were are all online and were hosted on the Zoom platform.
