Our popular and well-received series of online professional development workshops starts again in the New Year. This six-session programme is aimed at practitioners working in the space of creativity, culture, health and wellbeing and are designed with an emphasis on being able to put your learning into practice. Each workshop is a stand-alone session, so you can book for just one, but many people have attended the full programme.
“Really useful information and advice. Focusing, positive and galvanising.”
“Really useful – lots of information shared, easy to follow presentation and helpful slides.”
“The timing and content on the powerpoints was one of the best I’ve experienced in an online training.”
“I was really impressed with the way that it was delivered, given that it was on Zoom rather than in the room, I felt engaged with the delivery and learning, which isn’t always the case with webinars.”
“Nice sized group, I felt it was a safe space to ask questions that came to mind.”
“The session was informative, engaging and seemed to fly by.”
“Great to have all the information and links sent through afterwards . Very generous.”
All sessions run from 10.00 a.m to 12.30 p.m.
As well as exploring the benefits of creativity for mental wellbeing, this session includes mental health awareness, maintaining healthy boundaries, and safe and ethical practice. We will consider how to bring the Five Ways to Wellbeing into creative workshops and also the challenges of delivering during this current pandemic.

This workshop will look at different types of funding, show you how to research and select the right funder for your project, structure your funding bid and become more confident and skilled in writing your bid to make you and your project stand out.
This workshop focuses on the importance of evaluating your activities or project – why and what you should evaluate, different approaches and popular and appropriate evaluation tools. An essential session for anyone running arts and health activities.
This session provides an opportunity for you to find out more about social prescribing models and the contribution your creative practice could make. You will explore the various considerations involved and discuss how to present your proposals.
This is a new workshop added to our popular programme. It is designed for practitioners who want to know where to find information on health needs or other information about their local area and how to use it to inform their projects and practice.
