Open Art Critiques Facilitated by international visual artist Claudia Borgna www.claudiaborgna.org in collaboration with special guest poet Verónica Reyes www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/veronica-reyes

WHO: Open to artists in all genres at any stage of their creative practice wanting feedback on their work.

HOW IT WORKS: Bring an artwork you made and some specific questions for feedback. Two longer 45-minute spots are available, book by emailing Claudia at claudia.b@hotmail.co.uk. Shorter critiques also available for drop ins as time allows.

WHAT TO EXPECT: A caring safe space - An organic yet in depth analytical discussion prompted by the works presented - Some serious, fun, eye-opening conversation.

GENERAL MINDSET: Every artwork is precious - Every opinion is valuable - Each voice is heard - Everyone’s participation is appreciated.
