FlourishCafe: ‘Flourishing through doing’
Workshop with Eri Mountbatten-O’Malley as part of doing together 2023
Tuesday 4 April 2023
doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.
What is the connection between ‘thinking about’ and ‘doing’ art together? And how do these connections relate to flourishing artists? In this workshop we’ll consider the nature of ‘doing’ art for flourishing.
We’ll be using a powerful approach that incorporates World café methods (creative, artistic, connecting, sense-making activities), philosophical insights, and Group flow techniques, to explore questions and themes around thinking & doing, as well as personal/ professional growth, for flourishing. We’ll work in rounds of rich conversations to learn from one another. Key insights from table and group discussions will be captured by an in-house graphic artist.
FlourishCafe is a social enterprise aimed at supporting communities to develop their own insights into flourishing from a grassroots perspective.
