Ongoing Projects:

Also important to us is an exchange of creative arts to support like-minded organisations. Slow has been supporting the improv company, Dogface Improv since it was established in 2016. In return for support in mentoring, admin and coaching Dogface offers free workshops, tech support and help in advertising.

Both Slow and Dogface believe our collaboration is mutually beneficial to both staff, volunteers and those taking our workshops.
