We were delighted to launch our learning & skills strand at DLGs Autumn summit on 27th September, as part of the 'DLG & Critical Mass What Next 2022-24' project.

This is our free program of CPD sessions taking place online and in person across the West Midlands.

Workshops are led by experienced local artists and industry specialists, including members of the DLG community itself.
