Our LINK programme aims to bring together early career researchers through social events, networking opportunities and workshops led by our ECRs. Details of upcoming events of relevance to the network will be posted below, and blogs of past events are available through clicking on the images. In response to COVID-19, we're also raising awareness of the online ways to connect through #CreativeConnections - scroll down to find out more.
Arts response to COVID-19
The aim of #CreativeConnections is to highlight creative initiatives and responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is about finding ways to creatively connect to ourselves and connect with others during this ongoing period of uncertainty, As well as to support our own and the public's health and wellbeing, through creative self-involvement and wider practice and research. Therefore, we've listed a number of initiatives below that respond to the pandemic, activities for health, wellbeing and connection, and listed on our LEAD page a number of online events in relation to COVID-19, arts and health. Please do continue to share your own #CreativeConnections on Twitter to help us create an online space where everyone can easily access creative content, or direct us to any COVID-19 arts-based responses you think we should share with our network.
In May, during Creativity and Wellbeing week, we shared a daily creative activity with you that was partnered with a snapshot of research on the health benefits of engaging with that activity. To find out more, click here.
