Art of Wellbeing: Designing Arts projects that Improve Wellbeing

This service will help you consider how to develop or enhance your organization, group or community arts, health and wellbeing practice by providing a co- produced framework in which to plan future programme development.

TAP can work with you to:
• Develop creative ways to engage with your community, group or stakeholders e.g.
o Participatory appraisal using visual and creative methods with a learning approach so that each step helps to design the next step and everyone is fully involved in the process
o Open Space
o World Cafe
• Design, shape and deliver arts and creative based programmes, that address improving wellbeing, health and resilience
o Underpinned by robust scientific evidence
o Using many psychological and social science based practices, such as CBT, Mindfulness, ACT and the pioneering theories and interventions of Positive Psychology and Neuro Psychology

• Offer participative research based on theories that enables you to build on the assets of your community such as:
o Realistic Theory
o Appreciative Inquiry
o Participative Action Research

We can devise and deliver both qualitative and quantitative based evaluation frameworks within which to:
• Understand and measure a creative programme
• Including Mental Wellbeing Impact Assessments
• Use validated questionnaires
• Understand the experience using methods such as IPA and thematic analysis
.
Coming from an arts based background and combining it with Psychology, our associates are able to understand the processes and demands of a creative experience and build evidence based projects, programmes and workshops that meet wellbeing targets asked for by public and private sector bodies.

Our programmes have addressed these types of issues:

Mental Health
Addressing and reducing barriers to flourishing lives
Building Hope and Optimism
Increasing Happiness
Coping with stress, anxiety and adversity
Improving Mood
Strengths based confidence building
Improved engagement
Co- production and peer- led participation

We work very closely with our partners to ensure projects and programmes are co- produced and simple to run.
