“As the Junction’s representative to the state-wide Regional Arts Network, identified a need to provide participants in the Network’s Ebb+Flow residency program, and other regional practitioners, the skills and
knowledge to facilitate workshops within their communities. Working with Broome artist and lecturer Jacky Cheng, I led the production of a series of four facilitator instructional videos. Empowering creatives to share their practice with others is immensely valuable. By teaching others and sharing in making, artist’s is able to discover new things about themselves and their practice. Communities flourish when people connect over art.”

Rose Barton, Regional Coordinator

The Facilitator Development video series was produced through the Regional Arts Network,; a Regional Arts WA initiative, supported by Minderoo Foundation, The Ian Potter Foundation, and the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund. The Junction built upon this video series and launched EDIFY in June 2022, a three-week holistic online training program that provides creatives with the tools to become confident, structured, and engaging facilitators.
