'Well-being' can be defined as a positive state of mind and body, feeling safe and able to cope, with a sense of connection with people, communities and the wider environment.
We listen to young people and provide safe environments for them to explore personal issues such as migration and belonging. We utilise the unique potential of creative and cultural experiences to help children and young people build both personal and collective resilience and to enhance their sense of well-being.
We focus on building new and deepening existing networks and partnerships to co-create high-quality creative activities for children and young people. By using our established BeWell approach, we bring people together to co-design and deliver creative experiences that have been created in response to specific well-being needs. We are also developing a proposal in response to the call for Third Sector Commissioning in the city.
What's happening now
Advocating for the power of creative experiences to enhance well-being is high on our agenda. Together with schools and partners we are co-creating a series of projects in response to specific well-being needs.
Holiday Art Clubs
In partnership with The Virtual School we have created a fun and inclusive Holiday Art Club for primary aged children in care and any primary aged siblings who wish to join in.
Exploring the Familiar
Employing creativity and the approach of psychogeography, Exploring the Familiar challenges well-being issues for children and young people around transitions.
