Opening up discussion about mental health, Herts Mind Network will give an introduction to mental health, considering the impact on individual and recognising everyone has a role in promoting inclusion and challenging stigma of mental health issues. It will look at how we can create opportunities for individuals through our dance practice to support them to build resilience and wellbeing. Restoke, a not-for-profit arts organisation based in Stoke-on-Trent will reflect on their team’s Mental Health Awareness Training and how that has impacted/changed their practice.
This webinar is the forth of a six-part series that takes a look at how the dance sector in Hertfordshire can increase access to dance provision for more members of our local communities. It offers professional development for practitioners, potential audience development for dance businesses and places greater value on the social impact of dance.
