Cat’s Cradle: support for writers

Cat’s Cradle is a project for writers who do facilitation work, run by Jasmine Cooray and hosted by Spread the Word.

Date: 24/04/2024 – 24/04/2024

Time: 2.84618055555556


Cat’s Cradle provides support and solutions for issues
that arise during creative facilitation projects. Many writers run
workshops but do not always have access to advice or support around
challenges that arise, especially when working with young or vulnerable
groups. We may face a variety of dilemmas, or feel anxious or
overwhelmed, and not know where to turn for advice. Cat’s Cradle’s aim
is to create a forum to hold concerns and share resources. It is a very
rich space and an opportunity to learn from your fellow artists.
Our meetings are structured and time managed: each
writer brings one issue for ‘troubleshooting’, and others in the group
respond with ideas or practical solutions in response.
Each session will have space for 6 attendees, and
takes place at The Albany, Deptford, on one Monday evening every month.
Meetings last for 2 hours. We ask that attendees have worked on
facilitation projects for at least 1 year.
