Join us for workshops and discussions designed specifically to address the importance of Health and Wellbeing in the Arts and Culture sector. With explorations into Dementia and practical tips on how to maintain good mental health in the workplace.
With Martyn Bignell we will explore the Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme, which aims to ‘transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition, with stigma and a lack of understanding causing many people with the condition to experience loneliness and social exclusion.’
Dementia Friends Information Sessions are run by volunteer Dementia Friends Champions, who are trained and supported by Alzheimer’s Society. This Session lasts around 45 minutes. You will learn more about dementia and how you can help to create dementia friendly communities. There are Information Sessions running across England and Wales.
The second workshop is led by Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance steering group member, Miranda Stearn. We will look at how and why culture, health and wellbeing are becoming more and more closely linked – in policy, in the activities of cultural organisations, and in our daily lives. During the session we will share research and evidence, and offer practical tips for how to find out more information and get more involved. We will also hear examples of a variety of inspiring projects, drawn from the longstanding experience of the University of Cambridge Museums working in this area.
This session forms part of the Mansions of the Future Volunteer Masterclass Programme, therefore volunteers will be given priority when booking but all are welcome to attend.
