I'm hoping to move my practice to a deeper level via a particular, engagement-based public art project that I've been trying to get funded since 2018. Now, a university wants to help me develop it, which I'm excited about, but as I don't know what I'll continue to have control over around the project's focus once I've signed onto their program, I would like to get some specific skills (custom trauma sensitivity training, training on working with people struggling with homelessness, DEI training focused specifically on mental illness) that I see as important to the project, but that they may not prioritize. These are all skills I am sure will strengthen my practice in the long term as well.
