CPD and Training Opportunities

As an accredited ISTD centre, Kala Sangam Academy runs training and CPD events for south Asian dance teachers.

Kala Sangam also offers a varied programme of creative and professional development courses in the community. Participants are encouraged to develop creative and personal, as well as professional, skills.

Kala Sangam recently ran ‘Working in Partnership in the Youth, Arts and Cultural Sectors’, the popular Artswork course for artists, creative practitioners and professionals working in youth, community and arts projects.

Recent participant Kate Plumb, Blue Print Facilitator, from The Garage in Norwich commented:

‘I learnt so much today. It really fulfilled my aims for the day but has also given me confidence that I can deliver in partnership work effectively’.

There are currently no planned training workshops or CPD events, but do please keep checking back as we will update this section with details of all upcoming events.



Inter disciplinary workshops  in Children ‘s centres – Kala Sangam offers inter disciplinary workshops with two mediums of arts.

  1. Performative medium – where children engage in character play based on a story from jataka tales or animal fables and learn various dance movements from the south Asian dance vocabulary.
  2. Visual artform medium – where children engage in a multi sensory activity either making a variety of objects with clay or paper mâché or re cycled materials such as butterflies , birds , animals etc.


The project will have an over aching theme with a learning objective and outcome.
