Transformational feedback for artists - invitation to Guildhall Research Works event, Monday 18th April

Good afternoon,

Thanks to funding received from the Higher Education Academy as part of their Strategic Excellence Initiative, I have been leading a project entitled "Empowering artists of the future through a transformational feedback model." The objective of the project has been to explore two innovative and interconnected pedagogies: Guildhall School's coaching programme and Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process (a feedback system for work in progress.)

The research findings from the project will be disseminated at an upcoming ResearchWorks event on Monday 18th April.  I'd be delighted if you could join us on this occasion, please see full details of this event below: 

Transformational feedback for artists

Findings from Professor Helena Gaunt's Higher Education Academy funded research into the focused development of Liz Lerman's Critical Response Process and formal coaching skills at the School.  The presentation, to include an overview evaluation and individual case studies, will be followed by a panel discussion exploring wider implications, application and potential impact of this work in the performing arts and higher education.


The event will start at 14:30 with a drinks reception to follow at 17:00. For catering purposes, please could you RSVP to by Wednesday 13th April at the latest.
