MOT: Musicians working in Challenging Settings

  • 11th March 2020 - 16th March 2020
  • Snape Maltings, Suffolk

Snape Maltings Creative Campus is curating a 5-day residential course of rejuvenation, inspiration and support for experienced music leaders working in challenging settings.

Facilitated by musician /coach Katherine Zeserson (, this MOT is an immersive retreat consisting of reflective sessions, creative workshops and other interactive activities designed to help musicians build resilience and take stock of their working lives. Participants need to be experienced music leaders currently working with people who are living in challenging circumstances. Contexts of work might include care homes, prisons, hospitals, hospices or other relevant community settings. There are 8 places available.

The MOT will take place at Snape Maltings from lunchtime to lunchtime, 11-16 March 2020. There will be no fee to take part and we are able to cover any UK travel costs. Accommodation and meals will be provided.

Feed back from last year’s delegates:

‘To share this amount of time with 7 other like minded but all very different people while being skilfully guided by Katherine and sublimely supported by the Snape Team has undoubtedly had a profound and sustaining impact not only on my professional work but also my personal life. The holistic nature of the course was congruent to my way of thinking and so the whole experience has already begun and will continue to have far reaching effects.’

‘I think the course gave me some perspective on the true challenges of the work I have been doing and by helping me redistribute my priorities I will be doing stronger, better work and taking better care of myself.’

‘The facilitation was wonderful, so supportive and exploring with space to do this was amazing. The group was so lovely – I felt safe straight away. Just really eye opening and something that I think I will keep looking back on to help me reflect.’
