About the Event
This month we will be discussing all things art and health!
We’ll be thinking around self-care and supporting healthy working for artists and creative freelancers, and hearing from three Lancs based creative practitioners, Sue Flowers, Zaneb Khan and Emma Long who will share their experiences and learning from recent projects. After that there will be time for discussion, where you're welcome to share ideas, experiences and the challenges of working, or getting work in health and social care.
Join us on Zoom from 10am on Friday 4th June
