Beach Clean at Bourenmouth beach
Read More ...
Time : 10am
Location : Meet on the beach in front of the Bournemouth Aquarium
Type of Event : Beach Clean

Are you a child of the sixties and earlier? This was a busy era with so much going on – Coronation Street hit our screens for the first time, Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space and the first heart transplant took place. So many firsts!
Now we want to offer you the opportunity to do a first for yourself.
Are you over 50 and reached your half century without ever doing a beach clean? If so, we can help!
We’re taking part in a project to get more over 50s onto the beach to help us clean and conserve our coastline.
We’d love you to join our army of 50 somethings off to do their first beach clean so please get in touch and register to help at Sand Bay on 27th May. We look forward to seeing you there – let’s go coastal!
Register and see where to meet us on the beach here: http://www.mcsuk.org/beachwatch/beach/bournemouth-beach-west-pier/event/2017-06-02

Mentoring: the next creative generation
Read More ...
Time : 10 am- 4.15 pm

Type of Event : Training

Mentoring young creatives (both formally and informally) is vital to our work with young people. Excellent mentoring enhances skills through supportive relationships, encourages space for self-directed learning and helps shape behaviours which in turn encourage growth and development in others.

Exploring the principles of mentoring, you will be equipped with the tools to support the next generation of creative practitioners and leaders.
You will gain:
• A practical framework for best practice mentoring
• Knowledge about the principles which shape great mentoring
• Personalised mentoring advice
• Tips on how to plan and evaluate a mentee’s development, as well as your own
• Practical mentoring techniques
