Shaping how culture and creativity can improve wellbeing in Salford.

The next Salford Creative Health Network meeting is on Monday 29th April from 10am-12pm at Salford Museum & Art Gallery.

Creative health recognises that our wellbeing can be improved by connecting with art or culture – whether it’s reading or dancing, museums, music or more.

This meeting is for any cultural organisations, health, social care or voluntary services in Salford looking to understand the relationship between arts and health better. If you’ve had personal experience of creativity improving your wellbeing – then we’d love you to join the Network. Members of lived experience forums are especially welcome to attend, as are artists and creative practitioners.

The focus of this meeting is Strengthening Connections & Communications.

How do all the different organisations in Salford work better together to share news of creative events & programmes – so that those dealing with the greatest health inequities are signposted to activities that will support their wellbeing. How do we all work best together across the city – to make sure that activity is spread evenly across different neighbourhoods, especially in areas that need it most. How do we avoid competition but work in collaboration? What systems or methods can we use to map the creative health offer in Salford so it’s easy for both individuals and support organisations to find everyone’s right creative health offer. Where do people who aren’t connected to services look for information. And how do we talk about creative health and culture in a way that connects with local people?

Join us to discuss this subject – it’s a great chance to meet people from across the city and to shape how this work is delivered in Salford in the future.

The Network is chaired by Steve Hassall, Chief Executive of Salford Community Leisure, and Bruce Poole, Strategic Lead for Person Centred & Community Approaches at Salford CVS.

An agenda will be sent out mid-April.
