Would you like to visit a peaceful art gallery at the end of a busy day, whilst it's closed to the public, and meet like-minded colleagues from schools and the cultural sector? This is an opportunity to reflect on how art can help us all feel better, particularly young people in both primary and secondary schools. Book here for this bespoke CPD at Tate Liverpool: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/connecting-with-art-for-better-mental-health-and-wellbeing-tickets-80437969131 During the evening you'll hear about strategies for supporting children and young people with mental health issues whilst you also look after your own needs. There will be presentations from:
  • Jon Jones, Edge Hill University - talking about the current 'Tackling the Blues' project
  • Kath Thompson, Liverpool Learning Partnership - discussing current work being done in the city to develop a whole school approach to supporting mental health
A gallery workshop will explore how connecting with artwork in the gallery space can provide a creative and inclusive environment for dialogue and a platform to develop emotional literacy and self-esteem. There will be refreshments and plenty of opportunity for discussion and sharing practice.

dot-art Schools commissioned graphic artist Thom Isom to produce this fantastic poster, which is FREE to download here: dot-art-Creative-Careers-Poster Thom worked with groups of creative industries professionals, recent graduates, current students and the general public to find out what barriers exist to working towards a creative career, why and how people choose to study creative subjects and the huge advantages this can bring. The result is this inspirational image, highlighting the huge number of jobs in the creative industries (which is the fastest growing sector in the UK) and just some of the reasons why working towards a creative career is such a fantastic idea! We are grateful to Arts Council England for their support of this project.
