Art and Social Change project delivers first round of pilot training
Our Erasmus funded project Art & Social Change has delivered the first round of pilot training in Brighton, as well as in Italy and Lithuania.
In March Arts and Health South West's Erasmus+ funded Art & Social Change: Recoverism International project led its first UK-based pilot arts based training programme in Brighton.
Led by applied theater practitioner Kate Lodge, an aim of the training is to improve health/well being & work practices for addiction recovery workers.
The pilot training generated some interesting questions & concerns including: capacity, inspiring change and challenging organisational systems and rigid structures.

Photos and initial reports are now online on the project Facebook page and website.
The project is also researching and tackling challenges of using art in a health context - like the issue of evidence, discussed in the project's most recent blog, including a range of tools to help projects manage the more intangible, for example well-being.
