Derbyshire Arts and Health Network Conference 2015 - Interface 

FlowersOn 20th November 2015 we got together to ask ourselves the questions:  What is Arts and Health in Derbyshire in 2015? Who are we? Where are we going? 


We connected through the Facewall; we got to know ourselves better through the nef 5 ways to wellbeing; we made flowers and thought about our values as Arts and Health practitioners; we discussed Big Questions for our sector today. 

We also plotted some Derbyshire Arts and Health activities and organisations to the Derbyshire Arts and Health Tree'. It provides a snapshot of what’s going on, and of potential gaps that could be filled - where do you fit on its branches?

Download conference notes (DerbyshireArtsHealth2015), answers to the Big Questions and feedback below, along with a full breakdown of the detail of the Derbyshire Arts and Health Tree.
