CHANCE TO TAKE PART IN NEW CREATIVE WELLBEING PROJECT

On Friday 24 April Lincoln Performing Arts Centre announced the launch of its WELLNESS COMPASS project.

Led by venue producer Dawn Richmond-Gordon, this community project is a fun, enriching, creative guide to finding wellbeing together, and is looking for local participants.

You would be mistaken for thinking that with the closure of theatres, museums, libraries, and galleries our access to creativity has become limited, when in fact the flurry of artistic activity since Lockdown proves that it is all around us and always has been. It is in this spirit of cultural democracy that Lincoln Performing Arts Centre invites you to participate in a project celebrating creativity in the everyday.

Participants are being asked to document their creativity in series of videos inspired by the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing, with submissions set to be collated into a final artwork and wellbeing guide – a community resource for now and the future.

In a time when our appreciation for the NHS is at the forefront of our minds, it seems very fitting that we recognise the NHS’s longstanding and sound guidance for wellbeing, not only during this difficult time, but always.

In order to take part in creating the Wellness Compass, participants will be asked to create videos of their top tips and examples of how they are using creativity and culture to keep on track with the NHS 5 steps to wellbeing.

Each week will be focused on one of the five steps and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre will be sharing example videos made by its own team on Friday afternoons to get the ball rolling and inspire responses.

What everyone is really interested in is what creativity and culture means to you, and how you’re using it to keep you strong, active and well.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about how to get involved!

Further announcements and videos will be made through our blog here.
