Workshops from the Social Action Lab

Join They Eat Cultures Social Action Lab team and attend a workshop series designed around profession development in the creative industries. From brand development & marketing projects to writing funding bids, from events management to artistically ambitious festivals, we’ve something to support your ambition.

Throughout the summer of 2019 they will be delivering opportunities for skills and project development, starting with a programme of 6 workshops at the end of April and through May on a Monday and Thursday evening, held at our home the People’s Production Lab, exploring a wide range of insightful topics. We’ll be releasing a further programme later in the summer.  

These are practical, interactive workshop sessions with which attendees will have resources and tools to takeaway with them. With limited group numbers the Social Action Lab team have created an experience with plenty of opportunity for much needed 1-2-1 tuition to tailor the session to your own needs and project plans.

In addition to this, those working on the project are ensuring it is an accessible skills development opportunity for everyone interested by offering Preston based emerging artists / creative practitioners (ie in the first 2 years after graduation), students / unwaged a rate reduction via a Bursary Application, which you can receive further information on by contacting sally@theyeatculture.org  Get your tickets at Eventbrite
