CPD is a core part of what we do at Chrysalis Arts. For the past decade, it’s been a priority of ours to offer opportunities to professional artists living in rural North Yorkshire, East Lancashire and other Northern areas.  In recent years, as a response to the widening climate emergency,  we’ve become more committed to our  principles of  Slow Art and environmentally responsible arts practice. These now inform all of our CPD work.
