POSTPONED: Inspiring Wellbeing

North West Area Group Meeting
Monday 2 July 2018 10.45am – 3pm, Abbott Hall Art Gallery, Kendal

Engage members and regional colleagues are invited to join North West Area Reps for an Area Group Meeting at Abbot Hall Art Gallery on 2 July, 10.45am-3pm.

This session explores the theme of art and wellbeing ahead of the Engage Conference this year, with a focus on programming for older people and those living with dementia with colleagues from Lakeland Arts, Wordsworth Trust and Creative Age. It is also a chance to hear more about the Great Exhibition of the North's 'Inspired by' programme - involving venues and organisations from across the region. There will be an opportunity for further networking whilst exploring Abbot Hall Art Gallery when the meeting concludes.

Lunch is provided. Please confirm dietary requirements when booking - they are required two weeks before the event.

The meeting is an opportunity for all colleagues working in galleries, museums and education to catch up, network and help plan future events in the North West.
