RISE | Arts & Wellbeing Network Meeting 02

Date & Time: Wednesday 9th October 2019, 2pm – 4pm
Venue: The Wellbeing College, The Hive, Low Buckholmside, Galashiels TD1 1RT

We would like to invite you to the next network meeting this October. If you are able to attend, please could you book a free place on the Eventbrite link here, there are limited places so book early to avoid disappointment (or email steph.mackenzie@borders.nhs.scot.uk if you have any problems using Eventbrite).

We will be reflecting on and learning from our experiences of participating in the 2019 festival and sharing ideas for the next one. We have some tentative ideas about a ‘music for wellbeing’ themed symposium event and we have been successful in a partnership bid to Creative Scotland for some ‘Creative Writing for Wellbeing’ groups in libraries and another themed edition of the Eildon Tree creative writing magazine, so lots to think about already.

The Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) has announced that the theme for SMHAF 2020 will be Perspectives. The festival will take place over three weeks from 4-24 May 2020.

SMHAF 2019: Closing Report
Please find the link to the SMHAF 2019 Closing Report here. We are delighted to have been included in the festival and we have a couple of mentions and quotes from the Borders.

We look forward to seeing you there and will circulate an agenda closer to the date – we hope to have some presentations as well as discussion and planning ahead to 2020 SMHAF.
