Authentic Artist Asylums are back in person, at a wonderful fully-accessible venue, The Fisherrow Centre. Asylums offer a space to connect with other artists in a non-competitive environment, where you can rediscover your own deepest artistry and share your ideas with a small supportive group with no pressure to ‘succeed’.

Ensemble: Me & We was a brand new, 6-day residential workshop in which Kath Burlinson and Nigel Hollidge worked with the legacy of powerful teachers and practices as well as bringing their own experience to guide each individual and the group towards greater realisation.

Sustainably Authentic is a chance to check in online each day for a full week. Sessions take place at 10.00-10.45 GMT. The next one is June 20-26 2022.

After the success of last year's Digital Discipline of Freedom groups of 6 artists will be once again working with Paul Oertel during this two-day online journey.

The Authentic Artist Collective was to perform a new work, Our Body of Grief, in April 2020 at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, as part of The Edinburgh Passion. Instead, we made a video!
