The FLOURISH ARTS for HEALTH & WELLBEING TRAINING programme is intended to be an introduction to working in Arts for Health and Wellbeing.

This FREE programme consists of:

  • 3 workshop/content sessions
  • group work-shadowing opportunities
  • one set of 3 x 1-hour individual mentoring sessions

It has been designed to support creative practitioners/facilitators who are interested in this field of work and are complete beginners or have up to 1-year of experience.

The ethos of the course is to be introductory, exploratory and supportive. Over the sessions, the ambition is for participants to get to know each other, and develop trust so they each feel comfortable with bringing questions and areas for discussion to aid their own development.

There are two programme aims:

  • To share and discuss information about key areas of practice related to Arts for Health and Wellbeing creative facilitation
  • To provide opportunities for work-shadowing and mentoring to support skill development and reflection
