So, it’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and I’m ready to start a new Beauty and Utility Arts challenge.
Challenges stimulate my mind and this one will focus on my favourite thing about our work … finding innovative, creative, visual and powerful ways for us to engage with more people by listening…learning…responding to what makes people tick and how that impacts on our work with communities and individuals across Arts, Health and Wellbeing.
Our 365 day wellbeing project uses the five ways to wellbeing evidence based actions developed by the new economics foundation, now in use all over the country inspiring discussions and actions around health and wellbeing in our everyday lives.
We use the five ways to wellbeing as much as possible as a simple, effective tool and now I’d like to do something different.
Every day I will Tweet an action and a picture based on one of the five ways to wellbeing (see below) using the hashtag #5ways2wellbeing and I’d like everybody else out there to do the same. That way we can see a bigger picture, throughout the seasons, of what makes the UK tick when it comes to wellbeing.
There will be guest posts along the way, starting on 1st January with a very special guest, short interviews to view and at the end of each month we’ll pull together all the tweets and pictures for all to see.
I hope you’ll be in on this with me and spread the word far and wide, because the more people who get involved, the better.
