|Chris Drinkwater Creative Health in Primary Schools Award
One of the Network’s key cross cutting themes is Arts and Creativity. As such the Network has always promoted work in the creative arts and this has led to the creation of an awards programme for primary schools, in honour of our former Arts and Creativity Executive Lead, Professor Chris Drinkwater.
Creative Health is an approach to address Health and Wellbeing through engagement in creative activities such as dance, drama, visual art, film making, music or puppetry to name a few! There are many benefits of the approach in terms of our children and young people here in the North East and North Cumbria.
What is the Chris Drinkwater Creative Health Award?
The Network, together with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, have created this award to recognise Creative Health projects in a school setting in Key Stages 1 & 2 that have been used to enhance the Relationships and Health Education (RHE) curriculum, and to encourage personal development in their pupils.
The award comes with a financial prize for the best Creative Health projects.
After a successful foundation year applications are still open for 2023/24 projects!
Who can apply?
Although any school can apply we are targeting this opportunity into settings in more deprived communities, and where socioeconomic and health inequalities are most prevalent.
