- A freelance independent practitioner?
- Do you work in the arts & health sector?
- Are you working or living in Brighton & Hove?
Sign up to the Arts & Health Network, Brighton & Hove mailing list to be kept up to date on sector news and events.
You can also sign up to our new LinkedIn Arts & Health Group, a private safe space for you to network and share opportunities and news online together.
Creative Future is one of the partners in the Hera Partnership along with Robin Hood Health Foundation, The Old Market, and Diversity & Ability. We are delivering a 3-year arts-focused social prescribing programme supporting people across Brighton & Hove. Part of the work CF is doing is to set up a support network for freelance arts & health practitioners working in this field.
The network aims to:
- Build connections in and for the arts & health sector
- Provide peer support opportunities
- Offer regular updates about:
- Useful information & resources
- Work & training opportunities & collaborations
- National & international perspectives
The network will meet quarterly but we also plan to establish a monthly, facilitated peer support group meeting that will look at different themes, for example:
- Sharing good practice
- How to access support/looking after oneself
- Working with challenging people
This is a new network opportunity for freelance arts & health practitioners. We want this network to give you the support you need, and we encourage everyone who signs up to support the development of the network. It's a network run by you and for you.
If you have ideas to contribute or if you feel there is specific support the network should be offering, we want to hear from you! We know we'll need to secure additional fundraising to deliver some of the requests we've had, for instance, around training opportunities. Fundraising ideas are always welcomed!
