Arts Derbyshire has been working to develop the field of Arts, Health and Wellbeing in Derbyshire since 2008. This work has several strands, including a network, strategic advocacy and development work, management of specific projects and information dissemination. This county wide programme operates within a regional and national framework supported by Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance (CHWA). Our Arts and Health Co-ordinator is also East Midlands Regional Champion for CHWA, contributing to national policy and best practice, leading a range of regional network events, training and support for arts and health professionals. Sign up for free membership of CHWA East Midlands network here to receive regular updates from the region. Find out more about the individual projects listed below. You can also find links to some useful arts & health resources on our website.
