The value of DiARC to artists: Edit Lakatos (Belgium)

Edit Lakatos is the Founder of Tulipane Design, a social enterprise in Belgium that focuses on the creation of ethnic jewellery and aims to fight domestic violence. She also leads creative workshops to pass on weaving as a tool for relaxation. More info on my project can be found here

She says:

Diarc helped me to find a new way to communicate with young people and taught me techniques to engage an audience in general. The cards especially are such good ice-breakers for online and in-person events as well, that I will continue using them in the future.

Lessons learned for me and therefore recommended for other artists:

  • Include a moderator that provides structure for the training
  • Always have an ice-breaker exercise
  • Overall training time should be shortened (if online): young people cannotfocus for a long period of time
  • Involving an external speaker is key to keep interest
  • In-person events are more efficient to engage the audience
