The Mindful Museum – Continued Professional Development

Interested in working with mindfulness in museums and galleries?

Manchester Art Gallery
Friday 13 October 2017, 10am–4pm

Free, please book via email

A day for museum and gallery professionals who are curious about mindfulness and how it can be applied in a gallery context. Sharing our experience of working with different audiences and art forms, we’ll demonstrate how mindfulness practice can increase art appreciation and improve wellbeing.

Throughout the day we’ll talk about the development of our Health and Wellbeing programme and share some of the research and theory that underpins our practice.  You’ll also get to experience some creative mindfulness activities alongside mindfulness teacher and artist, Cathy Fortune.

There will be opportunity to ask questions about how to develop mindfulness in your gallery or museum.

Please note that lunch is not included so please bring some along!
