Kath launched the Authentic Artist Workshops in 2007.  The intention is to offer artists from any disciplinary background a safe space to explore their work and the opportunity to be guided towards greater personal and artistic realisation.  The Authentic Artist Collective was formed in 2009 to be a production company for new work and a support network for workshop participants.  


To see the Authentic Artist trailer click here and for forthcoming workshop dates visit Authentic Artist Workshops.


As the Authentic Artist community has grown, so has the desire for opportunities to connect.  In 2014, Authentic Artist Asylums began as monthly events in London and Edinburgh where previous workshop participants can continue to share their practices. For dates please see Authentic Artist Collective.


Kath developed the Authentic Artist programme under the mentorship of Paul Oertel and Nancy Spanier.
