Connector: FireParty Lab

FireParty Lab offers coaching and mentoring for writers, directors and producers born or based in Wales.

The Lab helps participants to strengthen their relationship with their own work and to develop emotional and professional strategies for the future.

The film industry is constantly evolving and is a financially precarious sector. Creative and emotional well-being have never been more challenged than during the Covid-19 crisis.

Supported by Ffilm Cymru and BFI NETWORK Wales’ Connector Fund, FireParty Lab offers one-to-one coaching and mentoring support, conducted remotely, with each participant having one hour of person-based and project-based support.

Participants are encouraged to do the following:

  • Identify personal and professional goals and focus on short and medium-term strategies in order to achieve long-term goals.
  • Target energy in the most productive way, given the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 crisis.
  • Formulate strategies to have in place for the future when restrictions are lifted.
  • Identify the core values at the heart of their work and of individual projects.
  • Focus on individual strengths and achievable goals.

FireParty Lab will be re-opening for applications in late 2020.
