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.
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).
On August 17th we held our second CONNECT event, Unlearning to Draw, with artist Frank Reed. Frank’s works are an exploration of architecture and space; more specifically, how the buildings that surround us shape us and determine how we interact with each other.
On August 5th we held our first CONNECT event, Decoding the Personal. This in-conversation event explored the role that genetics has played in 3 artists’ practice: Chrystal Ding, Paloma Tendero and Jill Mueller.
During June & July 2020 we collected information on how the pandemic has affected artists in the arts & health sector. It is no surprise that during the coronavirus pandemic a number of artists were instantly affected by a change in circumstances. Many of the artists in the Arts & Health Hub network are freelancers…
In place of our usual monthly peer groups, we’ve been having weekly check-ins for artists and cultural producers via Zoom.
Now is the time, more than ever, for us to connect. Join us over on Slack to stay connected to our community in these difficult times.
As the first phase of the Hub’s Arts Council grant begins, we’ve launched with a new and clearer website.
