SUMMARY - WEAVE | GWEHYDDU Arts and Mental Health Conference
Wales’ artists, health and social care professionals and senior mental health leaders gathered in Newport for the country’s first arts and mental health conference.
Weave, or Gwehyddu was organised by Wales Arts Health and Wellbeing Network in partnership with Aneurin Bevan Health Board to build on Wales’ pioneering arts and health partnerships, progress and successes in recent years.
Angela Rogers, WAHWN director, said: “The feedback on Weave, our first arts and mental health conference, from our members, funders, policy makers and politicians has been incredible. The Wellbeing of Future Generations Act has been a key driver steering genuine partnership working across the arts and health sector in Wales, enabling incredible innovation and creative approaches to tackle mental health challenges and address health inequalities. I am proud and excited to be part of this growing movement."
