Nicola Naismith’s research 2019 report Artists Practising Well reflected a wider need across museums, heritage and freelance practice for logistical and emotional support. This has been backed up by our own sector surveys in 2020 and 2021.
This new resource brings together work on practitioner support from across the culture, health and wellbeing sector. We will be discussing it in more detail at a number of workshops over the coming months, beginning with a #CreativeNetwork – Wellbeing session in collaboration with Creative Lives, 1-2pm on 25 October.
If we are to work effectively to support health and wellbeing practitioner support must be embedded in funding structures. All commissioning organisations must put plans in place to support freelancers. See our short report on the Practising Well Award, below, for ideas on how to do this.
