Corporate Training Workshops with The Lowry

The Quays

ArtWorks is The Lowry’s unique corporate training workshop programme - offering communication skills training (drawing on techniques used by actors) and creative teambuilding sessions (from visual art challenges to dance lessons).

Hosted in our award-winning building on Salford Quays, or at your offices, our team of highly experienced ArtWorks creative practitioners - directors, actors, visual artists and choreographers – will create a safe, supportive and non-intimidating environment for your team to excel.

ArtWorks will help you to:
• engage and motivate your staff
• foster creativity and inspire innovation
• equip staff to communicate confidently
• build teams

We will work with you to ensure your workshop specifically meets your objectives and business needs. You may want to split your session in two – with core communication training followed by a creative teambuilding challenge – it’s up to you. Sample workshop modules include: Building Rapport – face to face communicating, Creating Impact – communicating to large audiences and Leadership through Directing.

Creative Teambuilding

Working in our Studio, Classroom or theatre spaces we can deliver fun teambuilding sessions that encourage creative thinking, break down inhibitions, and bring individuals together to lean new skills as part of a team. We work with some of the best creative professionals in the North West who can deliver a host of activities.

Make a day of it

We can offer a range of hospitality packages to sit alongside your workshop. From breakfast buffets, to post workshop drinks in the Terrace Bar, or dinner in our Restaurant

Make a night of it

Proceeds from ArtWorks support The Lowry’s pioneering programme of work with young people in the community, offering communication, drama, and dance skills to those who would not otherwise have access to such training.

‘Artworks hosted a fantastic communications day for Total Swimming and Total Gymnastics. The room we had was great and provided a really good space for our morning company activities. In the afternoon, ArtWorks provided a brilliant workshop on improving confidence in delivering presentation, which was delivered by a very charismatic and engaging actor. The whole company really benefitted and enjoyed the day. The organisation and the catering were both excellent, and I would recommend ArtWorks to any company wishing to schedule a fun and educational activity for their team.’
