Developing your arts and health project will help you articulate clearly what you are seeking to achieve, identify your target group, understand the evidence base and consider practicalities.

Outcomes and evaluation focuses on the importance of evaluating your activities or project – why you should evaluate, different approaches and popular and appropriate evaluation tools. An essential session for anyone running arts and health activities.

Working creatively with older people explores the benefits of creativity for older people and those living with dementia. You will learn how to tailor your practice so it is accessible and engaging, get advice about working in care settings and have a brief introduction to dementia awareness.

Writing funding bids and applications will 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. Note: there is not time in this session for analysis of potential funders.

Self-care for creative practitioners - Many practitioners involved in delivering creative activities for others forget to find the time and techniques to look after themselves and ensure that their own health and wellbeing are supported. This workshop will introduce approaches to self-care and provide opportunities to share ideas so that you can continue to support yourself and others effectively.

Improving mental health and wellbeing - As well as exploring the benefits of creativity for mental wellbeing, this session includes mental health awareness, advice on facilitating successful sessions and safe and ethical practice. Participants will have the opportunity to begin developing ideas for their own projects and activities.
