This two day appreciative inquiry summit hosted by the England Centre for Practice Development, is based on principles of active participation and empowerment. The summit will provide creative opportunities for participants to co-design sustainable solutions to some of the health and wellbeing challenges we face today by pooling people’s experiences, creativity, ideas and resources, defining key challenges and opportunities and connecting people to co-create a blue print for change in our local communities. 

BAAT member, Joyce Armstrong will be exhibiting one of her current projects which is based upon accessing universal opportunities for people experiencing mental ill health with the emphasis upon the healing nature of art and wellbeing. The Centre provided the greater part of the funding for Joyce's pilot study last year and assisted in collating the research. This year they are hosting the group in one of their studios, offering further finance for the culminating exhibition and assisting with an application for ongoing funding.
