As we all begin the slow process of rebuilding and renewing after the extraordinary experiences of the last 15 months, Britten Pears Arts is delighted to be once again offering our MOT for Musicians Working in Challenging Settings, taking place at Snape Maltings on 15-20 September 2021 (lunchtime to lunchtime). This will be the fourth edition of this immersive residential workshop, offering rejuvenation, inspiration and support for experienced music leaders working in challenging settings. The programme is supported by Help Musicians UK, so there is no fee to take part, and we are able to cover any UK travel costs. Accommodation and meals will be provided.
Facilitated by musician /coach Katherine Zeserson (www.zeserson.com), this energising retreat is made up of reflective sessions, creative workshops and other interactive activities designed to help musicians take stock of their working lives, build resilience and envision the future. Participants need to be experienced music leaders working with people who are living in challenging circumstances. Contexts of work might include care homes, prisons, hospitals, hospices or other relevant community settings. There are eight places available.
Applicants will be notified by 5 August 2021 regarding their application and further programme details will follow in due course.
