Being Human Festival

In November, Ewan will be performing a work-in-progress of his solo, Achilles, at the Being Human Festival of the Humanities.  He’ll also be teaching a workshop for artists and performers as part of the ‘All in a Fankle’ workshop series at the CCA. Official details below!

“All in A Fankle: Workshopping Exuberant Failure”

A series of workshops run as a part of the Being Human Festival, November 2015


This is a call for artists and performers across all disciplines who want to push themselves and their work into uncomfortable places and to be willing to fail in the attempt to do so – all in the company of artists attempting the same processes.

What’s on Offer:

3 days of workshops run by Rachel McCrum, Ewan Downie, Clare Duffy and Elizabeth Reeder, and a chance to perform your work at the CCA.

When and where is it happening?

13 and 14 of November 2015: We’ll be running two full days of workshops at the CCA with a group of 12-14 makers (artists, writers, performers).

20 November: an informal sharing of the work that’s been made, with the option to perform at the CCA this evening.

Who are we looking for:

If you’re in the midst of a project or process and you’re grappling with how to solve a problem or how to shake yourself up a bit;

If you’re wanting to figure out what to jettison or what to add or how to fix a block;

If you’re interested in workshops that take you way out of your comfort zone, perhaps towards catastrophic failure;

then this is a call for you.

What to do?

Email as a single attachment (titled with Fankle_yourname.doc) with the following information to

1.) 50 word bio & 2.) 150 word statement about the project/process you want to work on during the workshop.
