Arts Cafe online event on Tuesday 20 April to feature Disability Arts Shropshire

The next Arts Café online event is Tuesday 20 April 2021 at 6pm to 8pm via Zoom, featuring a talk and workshop led by DASH (Disability Arts Shropshire) focused on mentoring and its benefits.

Artists, community and voluntary art organisations, and anyone interested in the arts, are invited to attend. The event is free and provides an opportunity to network, exchange ideas, information and learn new skills.

DASH has been running mentoring schemes for Disabled visual artists since 2015. A mentor is an experienced and trusted adviser. Mentoring is great: we all need support, reflection and a chance to talk about our artwork.
