WERKshop is a specially crafted workshop designed for emerging queer artists residing in rural and non-urban settings. It provides a unique opportunity for queer creatives who are either starting their artistic journey or looking to redefine their work at a different stage in their careers. The workshop caters to individuals seeking guidance, contemplative space, and insights into the intricacies of the industry.

Led by Xnthony, the workshop offers mentorship and support, engaging in discussions about your aspirations, creative vision, and the practical aspects of developing a forward-thinking and sustainable artistic practice. Covering everything from overlooked administrative tasks to strategic planning and show copywriting, WERKshop addresses a comprehensive range of topics.

Topics explored during the workshop include funding applications, writing for the Arts Council, and effective methods to bring your ideas to life, along with valuable feedback on artist's upcoming projects.
