Connecting with art for better mental health and wellbeing
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:
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.
