A restorative space to revive, reconnect, restore and rediscover.
Re-UP! is a programme to explore restorative practices, sharing methods of support, care and communion. The pilot will run from May 2022 to March 2023 and has been designed in partnership with Clore Leadership Brilliant Routes, Arts Council England, BFI Race Equality Network and Wellcome Collection for exclusively POC cultural leaders,
Re-up is a Black British saying meaning to restore and regain energy, which is particularly critical after a depleting two years. The programme will prepare leaders for a world in dramatic flux. Rather than focus on performance strategies, the programme will help leaders prepare their whole selves for a world that is emerging paying particular attention to our minds, bodies, care systems and creative souls.

Kinship Circles are Action Learning and Thinking Environment sessions that give people the chance to explore their own questions with the help of the hive mind. First, a qualified facilitator will share Action Learning and Thinking Environment tools with the group, before the group has a chance to practice peer-learning exercises.
Oct 2022: Re-UP With Care
Nov 2022: Re-UP Your Mind
Feb 2023: Re-UP Your Body
These creatively structured half day events will explore three key areas. Care: Finally we can add the word care to our leadership lexicon - care for self, our teams, audiences and communities as well as care for the environment. In this session we will look at how we might best care for all of the above, starting and ending with the self. Mind: Next, we will explore how our mindsets are key to how we see the world, ourselves and each other during this time of change. We will explore ways to practice flexibility, agility and expansiveness as the world of culture, work and relationships shift and change. Body: As we move into Spring, we will actively contemplate how to grow more aware of our bodies and better manage our chemical balance and stress levels.
Re-UP! will offer participants the chance to:
- create sustainable practices that help restore,
revive and re-energise
- connect with others with aligned experience from
across sectors and build lasting supportive networks
- develop and enhance leadership skills
- grow a compassionate relationship with self and others
Participants for the 2022 programme will be Black, Asian and ethnically diverse leaders drawn from Clore Leadership's Brilliant Routes national network of cross-sector cultural professionals, the Arts Council, the BFI's Race Equality Network, and Wellcome
