WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID

"I have a much greater understanding of how my own practice can be used as a means of critically examining the world/community around us, and also take away lots of practical skills and ideas“

“One of the things that the course does best is combining theoretical knowledge with practical approaches and bridging the gap between those two areas. In doing so the course serves in itself as a great example."

"It challenges the way you think and also many of the attitudes you have. This is done in a non confrontational way, self-reflecting way."

"I got new energy...improved my understanding and expanded my horizons and opened my eyes to the world as a bigger picture."

"Love that it can make learning fun even though the issues are very serious”

“Very inspiring to see the power of art and creativity
