An online workshop exploring what’s needed to support the health and wellbeing of artists who work in older people’s social care.
As the country begins to re-open following the latest lockdown, and older people’s social care looks forward to welcoming back visiting professionals, what is needed to ensure the wellbeing of artists as they look to return? This is a chance to hear about recent research in this area, and to share your own experiences and views with others who work in older people’s care.

Nicola Naismith

Nicola Naismith will share insights from her research into the wellbeing of creative practitioners working in health and care settings. Nicola is a visual artist with over 20 years’ experience. She creates visual artworks, talks, writing and events which explore the importance of context and connection in both art-making and leadership practice. In 2019 Nicola researched and wrote Artists Practising Well which explored the support needs of creative practitioners working in Arts for Health and Wellbeing contexts.

Kathryn Welch

Putting the (virtual) kettle on for this series of events is Kathryn Welch – a freelance practitioner interested in championing communities, building connections in unlikely places, and celebrating creativity at the heart of it all.
Kathryn and Nicola will create a safe and comfortable space for everyone to participate, create, connect and share.
This creative session is the third in a series of online networking and development activities for artists who lead participatory work with older people in care homes and day centres.

Future session dates are:

• Wednesday 16th June, 4pm to 5.30pm
• Thursday 15th July, 2.30pm to 4pm
Please note that each event is bookable on an individual basis and spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
This programme is supported by Creative Scotland.
