Interested in finding out more about what Reflective Practice Groups are, how they work and the benefits they can bring for artists and arts organisations working in mental health contexts?
Join our free online launch event, discussing key findings and recommendations from our new report by Nicola Naismith, ‘Flourishing Lives: Reflective Practice Groups’, which will outline the benefits of Reflective Practice support for artists and arts organisations working in mental health and wellbeing settings.
The report follows a 6 month research project, funded by The Baring Foundation, which provided free Reflective Practice Group support sessions for 12 arts organisations and 71 artists working in mental health contexts.
The report – and this online event – will be useful to anyone interested in accessing or providing opportunities for reflection within the participatory arts sector: creative practitioners, commissioners and funders of participatory arts, and creative, operational and leadership teams within organisations.
