Erasmus Plus investment secured for two exciting new international partnerships, Healing Wounds and EAR.

Both projects will share acta’s expertise in drama workshop delivery, offering practical training courses at acta in Bristol, as well as development of digital tools that will enable us to share and learn far more widely.


The next seminar, “What’s my motivation?” will be on the afternoon of Wednesday 13 March, 1.30 – 4.30pm.
We will be joined by Conrad Murray and Francois Matarasso.  
The seminar will provide a timely opportunity for reflection and debate for anyone involved in community arts and participatory practice.
