The WAHWN website was launched this year as part of the Bangor University, ‘Building a Collaborative Artistic Research Community’ conference. Any Wales-based members delivering arts, health and well-being focused work can sign up for free, upload their profile, view and post opportunities, blogs and a wide range of resources in the Knowledge Bank section. Take a look at the website at wahwn.cymru
Engage Cymru is delighted to announce a further successful funding award from the Arts Council of Wales to deliver training and networking events over the coming year. More details to follow shortly.
Engage Cymru has also been successful in its application to the Arts Council of Wales to support a programme of work aimed at young people at risk of offending, offering opportunities to achieve an Arts Award, in partnership with Theatr Clwyd in 2019.
This work will build on and consolidate earlier Engage Cymru programmes with young people at Parc Prison Youth Offending Institute and Hillside Secure Unit and respond to recommendations in the Youth Justice Board’s ‘Charlie Taylor’ Review which advocates for meaningful activity as one way of preventing offending behaviour.
