Finland | New Course guided residency program

Applications are invited for New Course, a guided residency program at Arteles Creative Center in Finland. The program takes place for one month periods in October and November 2020 and is a fee paying programme.

New Course is a guided residency program for the personal growth of artists, performers and creative professionals. The program is designed to expand and enhance artists' creative practice, routines and way of being through new collaborative methods and professional guidance. The program helps artists establish their own rituals and guides them to best practice.

The New Course program gives participants the structure, guidance, time and creative freedom they need for taking the next steps in becoming the best version of themselves, both personally and professionally. The program brings together artists from different disciplines and backgrounds to share a focused month in the peaceful surroundings of Arteles Creative Center.

The program is led by Dr Margi Brown Ash from Australia, a professional collaborative creative coach, therapist and mentor, who is also an award-winning performer and theatre director. For more than a decade now, Margi has been researching and exploring how artists can create a life of vibrancy and joyful discovery, despite the difficulties faced in our chaotic world.
