Book for July's East Midlands CHWA Gatherings

You are invited to the second series of East Midlands CHWA Network Events hosted by regional champions, Rachel Howfield Massey (Arts and Health Derbyshire) and Laura Phillips (Derby Museums). The events will take place on Tuesday 28 & Thursday 30 July, via Zoom, between 10.30-noon.

This is an opportunity to meet other culture and health practitioners from the region, find out how everyone is doing and think about what we might want from a regional network. At our last meeting the subject of digital poverty was high on many people’s agenda, so we will be focussing discussions around this question:

Have we found ways to create intimacy at a distance, particularly in relation to digital poverty?

The group will also welcome guest provocateur dance artist and researcher, Gemma Collard-Stokes to share her thoughts on how nature connection holds opportunities to adjust and respond to the withdrawal of human touch from our lives.
