Website Arts and Health Hub
The Arts & Health Hub has been awarded funding from Arts Council England to provide a programme of 6 online group supervision sessions for artists working in the health and care sectors.
Clinical supervision is a supportive process facilitating personal and professional learning and development, and can be helpful for people working in challenging environments such as hospitals, care homes, prisons, hospices and other health settings.
Supervision can support artists to enhance reflective practices, manage stress, improve self-care and wellbeing, as well as to explore and respond to the unique challenges of working in healthcare settings during the pandemic.
The 6 sessions will be facilitated by a UKCP registered psychotherapist and supervisor in a closed group setting of no more than 6 participants. All sessions will take place online.
The programme will encompass a range of solo and group creative activities as well as group discussion, with a focus on exploration and reflection rather than solutions.
As this is a pilot programme, participants will be involved in the development of a monitoring and evaluation process and will be required to feedback across different platforms before, during and after the sessions to improve the experience for all.
This opportunity is open to UK based freelance artists working in any medium in a health or social care setting/s, where their work has a stressful and demanding emotional impact. We cannot accept applications from artists working in a salaried position/s.
We regret that we cannot offer support to artists who have not been able to work during the pandemic, as the group will focus on the sharing of current work experiences and challenges.
Sessions take place on the following dates in 2021, from 2pm — 4pm. You must be able to attend all sessions to be eligible.
