Event facilitator: Georgia Dack, Learning Producer at Turner Contemporary, and an Engagement Assistant at Turner Contemporary.
About the event
Turner Contemporary’s Creative Mindfulness resources were developed in response to the school closures during the first UK lockdown, to support the recovery curriculum, and address the impact on young people’s wellbeing as they return to the school environment in September. The series of free video activities were designed to be used in class by schools to help students relax, recuperate, and refocus.
In this session, you will take part in a live Creative Mindfulness workshop, hear about what inspired and informed the development of these resources, and what to consider for incorporating wellbeing into your learning content or learning programme.

Engage Spring Training Programme
Engage is delighted to announce a programme of workshops and short courses which will run throughout February and March to provide training and skills development for those working in the gallery and visual arts education sector across the UK.
The programme will support colleagues in the sector to develop their understanding and skills in relation to issues which have become more urgent because of recent challenges, particularly since the pandemic, including mental health and wellbeing, the climate emergency, and supporting creative practitioners. Additionally a range of sessions will support colleagues to work in the online environment through the development of skills in digital facilitation, facilitating play online, and digital drawing, amongst other topics.
Engage has received generous support through the Cultural Recovery Fund administered by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation for core costs and sector support. As a result, we are able to offer funded places on our workshops and courses to those in England, supported through the Cultural Recovery Fund. We are able to offer free places to those in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Sessions are suitable for colleagues who are employees, freelance, currently furloughed and unemployed. Engage members can take advantage of priority booking. Remaining places will be opened to bookings for others working in the sector.
