Creative Recovery Network enters collaboration with WHO to develop new arts practice resource 

Creative Recovery Network is collaborating with the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the regional representative for the development of a new resource on arts practice and the ethics of care.

‘With Care and Curiosity’ is being developed with participation from thought and practice leaders in this area from the six WHO geographic regions and involves a participatory action research process followed by the development of a resource for distribution.

Based on the idea that creativity is a fundamental human activity and a powerful resource for individual and community health and care, the resource will offer questions to consider in creative projects within communities where care is an identified concern as well as strategies to support arts practitioners in caring for their own health and wellbeing.

The resource will share background, definitions and key considerations pertaining to the ethics of community-engaged arts practice as well as examples of projects in different contexts around the world. We look forward to sharing more about this project as it progresses.
