We’re delivering a free Applied Creativity Lab via Zoom for 16-25 year olds to take part in in Yorkshire, working together in groups to address the mental health crisis escalated by the pandemic through March 2021.
Applied Creativity Labs help you to use your creativity to solve real world challenges, by introducing them to experts and facilitating group projects. You’ll meet experts working in the field of mental health, and come up with your own ways to meet real life challenges. You’ll look to develop your ideas, and present them to professionals who can make them happen!
Anyone aged 16-25 years old, living in Yorkshire and Humber.
You’ll need to be able to access the Labs via Zoom on a computer, tablet or phone.
We will begin the process with a professional expert explaining the challenge of finding new ways to improve mental health. Then we’ll do some creative thinking training, and you’ll have access to a resource-bank of ‘experts’ from the NHS, local mental health organisations, business and universities to help you develop a project.
You’ll need to be available for all the sessions, from 5-6pm on the following dates:
Monday 1st March
Thursday 4th March
Monday 8th March
Thursday 11th March
Monday 15th March
Thursday 19th March
Monday 22nd March
Thursday 25th March
Monday 29th March
“It’s really changed my perspective on things; if you want to do something just do it: find people who are interested, look for funding, and make your idea.”
