The CHWA 2021 Awards are open for applications!

During the pandemic, we have seen the culture, health and wellbeing sector respond with creativity, imagination and kindness to meet global crisis, local need and individual loss.

As partnership and collaboration have driven innovation and greater reach, the need to systematically support wellbeing across the sector, and to respond to the climate and ecological emergency and its relationship with global and local inequalities is becoming clearer.

We are looking for projects, organisations and people who have led the way through lockdown and/or are learning from this challenging time to build a better future. We want to hear about work of all types and reach.

The CHWA 2021 Awards and partners are:

  • Collective Power in partnership with Ideas Alliance and The LENs (Lived Experience Network).
  • Practising Well in collaboration with Nicola Naismith.
  • Climate in partnership with The Happy Museum Project and Culture Declares Emergency.

Important Information for Applicants

We can accept applications in different formats. Please do get in touch, if we can support you in this process. To learn more, head to the CHWA 2021 Awards webpage.

Submission deadline is 5pm, Friday 12 February. Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by the Alliance soon after and their projects published on the CHWA website.

Winners will be announced at an open online event as part of the CHWA 2021 Conference: A Culture of Care on Friday 23 April 2021.
