I’m very happy to have been invited to share the Cultural Prescriptions work I’ve been delivering for Arts Derbyshire and Derbyshire County Council at this years CHWA conference. There’s more info about the commission here along with images of work to date. At the conference I alongside two of the Social Prescribing Link Workers this work has engaged will be discussing ‘Joyful Interruptions’ – a zine we’ve co-created to support clients and peers.
The CHWA national conference will be held online across 3 days, 21-23 April 2021. Its core theme of care includes caring for each other, caring for the environment and caring economies. They plan to be delving into conversations about the big topics that have been amplified by Covid-19, including practitioner support and grappling with the sector’s role in challenging health inequalities, reflecting on how we can work more collaboratively and more intersectionally to address the multiple emergencies we face; a global health pandemic, the climate and ecological emergency, and rising inequality.
