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.

CHWA Yorkshire and Humber activities- past and present


 

Covid 19 Response: Tea &... Check ins for the sector

In response to Covid 19 and thinking about fellow members, Sue and Deborah created a space to connect (online of course), every couple of weeks for those who fancied it or needed it.

There were no agendas. It was a space to check in with each other, share and capture what  everyone was doing (or not)...

Creative Well: A pilot self care programme for practitioners

During our Yorkshire and Humber fortnightly check-ins many important issues were surfaced, including the emotional labour involved and the toll that it takes in working in this field.  

In response to this, we offered a small number of professionals working in culture and health  the opportunity to participate in a pilot self care programme with integrative art pyschotherapist Roshmi Lovatt in Autumn 2020.
 

Want to be part of the future development of CHWA Yorkshire and Humber?

Deborah and Sue invited CHWA members based in Yorkshire and Humber to join them for an open discussion on Monday 19 July, 2021.

" We are considering the need to set up a regional steering group and/or other regional planning and development formats and there are different directions we can take this in.

Looking at different types of representation is key as is developing an understanding of remit. We can work on this together. We'll come to the discussion with some thoughts and hopefully you will too. "

If you were unable to attend and want to be part of the conversation, please click here to complete a survey by Friday 20th August.

A Call Out: Do It Yourself Together!

We are putting a call out for people to contribute to a programme called Do It Yourself Together. This would provide an opportunity for members in Y&H to discuss topics or work areas of interest or share their work with others whilst networking and learning from each other.

We are asking CHWA members to propose ideas for sessions or events that they would like to run...formal, informal, debate, creative, information sharing, live, virtual…other...it's up to you.

The DIY together bit aims at pooling our collective resources, creativity and intelligence...sharing what we have so your proposed event would need to be organised and funded by you, with support from CHWA Champions to develop ideas, contribute on the day if that's useful and offer admin support to reach other members. 
 

If you would like to host a session of Do It Yourself Together, please contact Sue or Deborah for a discussion or with the basic details eg date, time, platform, max numbers, description of event content and format
