We are really pleased to announce the artists that will be accessing phase one of the Support Hub project. These artists will meet once a month in a closed peer-to-peer creative mental health group, exploring their lived experience and providing crucial support to one another.
Connecting during coronavirus.
Whilst our in-person activities are on hold, here’s how you can get involved with the Hub:
We had an overwhelming amount of applications for our workshops with the Royal College of Psychiatrists Arts Special Interest Group (ArtSIG). We were only able to pick three artists for these commissions and the successful artists are listed below. We're looking forward to kicking off these workshops in November and continuing for the next three months.
We are extremely grateful and excited to have received a new Arts Council grant to deliver the Support Hub, looking at practical support for artists.
Read our COVID Impact Report.
During June & July 2020 we collected information on how the pandemic has affected artists in the arts & health sector. 91 members of the network responded to our short survey which asked questions about how artists who specifically work in arts and health had been impacted by the pandemic. We also asked what arts and health practitioners would like to see from the sector.
