Things have been super busy at Chisenhale Dance Space. We were successful with our latest Grants for the Arts application and we've hit the ground running!
The programme includes lots of fantastic activities, including REFINE studio residencies, Thinking Space office residencies and Arts Counselling. The latter is the one that I am finding the most interesting to deliver.
Arts Counselling provides dance artists with the opportunity to book a free 1-on-1 session with a 'counsellor' who can offer advice on certain topics. Each artist can use the session to ask for advice, signposting, or just talk about their latest project and where they want to take it.
I think this is such an important interjection for an artist that for a lot of their time, might be on their own, working independently, and just needs someone to run their ideas by. We know how valuable an outside eye can be artistically, but it's also incredibly valuable for all of the other aspects of being an artist too.
If you'd like to book a session, do have a look on our website for available slots and topic areas here.
