This November peer group we had really fantastic works/ideas shared by both Shahina Jaffer and David Gilbert.
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.
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.
This October we held our first virtual peer group for artists. Since 2015 we’ve run 56 peer groups in person at Kentish Town Health Centre. This was our first opportunity to support artists online by providing peer to peer support on active projects.
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.
If you missed our event on career pathways on Monday 21st, you can now watch again below.
We’re pleased to announce that our artist peer groups will return, virtually, in October and November.
The Support Hub is a pilot programme offering mental health support for artists with lived experience of mental health difficulties.
The Arts & Health Hub is working in partnership with the Royal College of Psychiatrist’s Arts Special Interest Group (ArtSIG) to commission 3 virtual workshops. The workshops are to be delivered to psychiatrists that are members of the ArtSIG who have a particular interest in how the arts can play a vital role in our health and wellbeing.
The Arts & Health Hub has received a Covid-19 grant from the National Survivor Users Network (NSUN).
