Drawing the existing research which articulates how creative writing benefits mental health to more strongly advocate for the civic value of what I do as a facilitator and artist.

Specifically useful to me was Marina's summary that funders can be persuaded to fund networks/collaborations; Synthia's information on a new pop-up book shop in an empty shop/Council support for this; Abigail's observations on inclusivity; Laura's on the University's possible contribution.
Louise Blackwell (she/her)
02:13:31
Find a way to create a network or series of meetings with a wide range of stakeholders across sectors (health, education, etc etc) and arts people so we are not talking in a bubble
