Over the past year the Scottish Artists' Union piloted a series of training workshops from Stromness to Ullapool and they were so successful that we've managed to secure a Highlands & Islands Learning Organiser post and more courses from Scottish Union Learning. The first of this year's FREE courses are now available to book on our website, please get in touch via learning@artistsunion.scot if you need any further details or support to participate in these events.

Running Great Workshops which will be held in Nairn during November/December, this one-day course has been developed by Tripod Training and covers all aspects of creating workshops as well as guiding learners to understand the key principles of effective workshop design and experiential education methods.


The School of Unlearning in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, during February/March 2020, will examine aspects of contemporary work to critique notions of professionalism and work-based learning. The workshops will carefully unravel working structures and address important issues relating to work as a way to examine our labour conditions and establish common values. 


Travel & Accommodation 

Where possible we'd like to organise car shares to the workshops, let us know if you'd like to share a car or are willing to offer other members a lift.

If you find the cost of travel and possible accommodation means you are unable to attend then Scottish Union Learning are able to reimburse these expenses for our H&I members if agreed in advance of the course. We can put you in touch with the right person and help you make a claim. 

For all travel and accommodation queries please contact Kirsten via learning@artistsunion.scot

Get the most out of your membership and book onto our FREE training - learn, meet your union officials, network with fellow members, and find out more about the union and its activities.

Yours in Solidarity,

Kirsten Body
