The Collective Power Award and Shortlist
The need to work collaboratively and share resources and knowledge to address both local and national challenges is clear. This award aims to recognise a project or programme in which partnership working has improved the health and wellbeing of individuals or communities.
In collaboration with the Ideas Alliance, we were looking for inspiring projects or programmes that had brought together different fields. Submissions had to involve culture or the arts, and they also needed to demonstrate how they engaged with health, care or wellbeing partners. Partnerships could also involve organisations or individuals engaged with activism, education, social justice or any other relevant sectors to bring about change. The key focus was meaningful partnerships across different fields or disciplines.
Judges: Rich Driffield (Ideas Alliance), Moira Sinclair (Paul Hamlyn Foundation) and Mah Rana (artist/ researcher/ writer/ curator / LENS champion)
