The Greenhouse Sessions is back with an exciting new format! We will be featuring more real-life cases, where you will get a chance to dive deep, offer your insights and learn from your fellow practitioners in a supportive environment.

5 on-going projects from The Greenhouse Lab (an arts-based community development incubator programme) will be featured, with participants presenting their process as they shape a project from scratch, covering areas such as:

  • Identifying a community to work with
  • Discovering the needs and gaps that are present
  • Articulating the Theory of Change
  • Developing a coherent programme design

Examples of communities include persons with dementia and their caregivers, incarcerated youth and seniors.

Our mentor for this session is Dr Justin Lee, Senior Research Fellow at National Council of Social Service. Join us for this special session and tap into the collective wisdom of the community of practice.

FAQ about The Greenhouse Sessions

The Greenhouse Sessions is a programme by ArtsWok Collaborative. It is a community of practice where people who share a common concern for arts-based community development, teach one another to do it better through a process of regular engagement.

Our sessions involve:

  • Connecting with other experienced practitioners working in the field of arts in communities
  • Exchanging information, stories and personal experiences in a way that builds understanding and insight
  • Generating new knowledge and collaboration opportunities through this shared platform to kick-start meaningful action

As this is a community of practice, the sessions will be open only to those who have some experience or expertise related to the session, as well as individuals who have a keen interest to contribute to the topics of the session.

The emphasis here is on group learning, so while literature and other resources will be made available to participants from time to time, the collective wisdom of the community of practice is the real treasure. So come prepared to give and to receive.
