Each region is represented by two champions: one from the museums sector and one from the arts sector, each working with health and wellbeing. The regional champions are working with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance in a voluntary capacity. Become a member and join the conversation.

Cultural, Health and Arts organisations in the West Midlands have a long history of partnership working which has positively transformed wellbeing. They share a commitment to continue working together in developing high quality practice. 

Keisha Grant and Helen Fountain became CHWA Regional Champions for the West Midlands in June 2020.  Read more about their practice and visions for the role here.

They are taking over from the inaugural champions Kate Gant (Creative Health CIC) and Rosie Barker (Birmingham Museums) who worked to bring the first regional steering group together and collectively set priorities and develop activities for the region. Learn more here.
