"This is a critical time, creative practitioners will be living and processing their own experiences of recent seismic events whilst supporting others through participatory arts offers. A culture change is needed in the participatory arts sector to ensure creative practitioners are consistently supported in the work they do."
In this series of conversations, curated by Nicola and the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance, we bring together new research and examples from practice alongside an opportunity to meet with peers and explore what it means to practice well.
These events are free and supported by funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
