Helen Lindsay, who coordinated the project, curated this fantastic exhibition with Conservation for Wellbeing members. The slide show was produced to celebrate and document the experience of everyone involved.
Participants from the mental health support charity ‘SMART’ were invited to join a welcoming group of people at London Metropolitan Archives to take part in a pilot project. C4W combined paper conservation activities, the archives from St Luke’s Hospital in Islington and research into the wellbeing outcomes for participants, staff and partner organisations.
Thanks to Helen, everyone who came along to the sessions, our partners and our research team – Art Therapist Daisy Rubinstein and UCL’s Dr Helen Thomson. Thanks also to City Bridge Trust, who fund the project.
It’s not quite over yet. Daisy is writing up her research, and that will be used for outcomes evaluation and publication.
