January 2019


Our next Learning Day will be held on Monday, January 28th at Highfield Park, Hook, (£80 members, £100 non-members, 10am-4pm). The theme for this day will be the dynamics of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in groups.

Questions we might explore include:
  • How do issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, disability and so on affect the dynamics of the groups that we facilitate?
  • How do our own identities and what comes at us because of our own identities affect our facilitation?
  • How do we facilitate these issues as they arise?   
Our Learning Days are an excellent day for all facilitators (new, experienced and occasional) to meet, review and share good practice. We anticipate that we will all leave with new ideas, resources and a refreshed practice, having made and renewed our connections.

Places are limited so please book early to secure a place. To book, please  email us  or call us on 0203 282 7128.  


Artgym has announced the dates for the next Facilitating Creative Collaboration Advanced Diploma, which will begin February 2019.

Artgym created this course in 2016 to meet a growing need to help experienced practitioners (Facilitators, Coaches, Business Leaders) to effectively lead creative collaboration in groups, organisations and the community.

The course is a 10-month, part-time, deeply immersive learning journey. Most importantly, it is a course that creates tangible impact for participants and their organisations:

"I applied the skills of leading creative collaboration in order to empower and engage the membership of Royal College of Nursing. This has resulted in a highly active membership who have become change-makers within the organisation. Through creative collaboration, the membership now have a voice, feel a sense of ownership and play a vital role in shaping the future of the Royal College of Nursing." - Mairead, former participant

Successful participants become Certified Advanced Practitioners with Artgym and are accredited (up to level 3) with the Association of Facilitators.

If you are interested in learning more or applying for the course, please email Callie Seymour or call +44 (0)20 7033 3777.

We wish you all a very Happy New Year!
