Human Henge

Human Henge Online explores what happens when Human Henge, an existing programme that creatively engages mental health service users with the ancient and natural landscape of Stone Henge is adapted for delivery online.

The partnership with English Heritage and Richmond Fellowship was funded by the Cultural Recovery Fund. Participants met online to engage remotely with the ancient landscape and archaeology of Stonehenge, ending with an exclusive experience of virtual access to the Stone Circle close to the Spring Equinox.

About the Project:

The 5- session pilot ran from January – March 2021 with one successor in-person session scheduled for summer 2021. Fortnightly online meetings for a maximum of 12 participants were supplemented by posted Culture Parcels, with things to do or think about between each meeting.

The project was also supported by a private Facebook Group. A digital support package – including equipment, data, training and support as necessary – enabled all participants to join online sessions regardless of digital skills or resources. At the end of the programme, participants were offered a free pass to visit Stonehenge.

Safe Practice, Impact, Outcomes and Evaluation

All partners and policies meet professionally required standards and due diligence is applied to the formation of partnerships. The project has ethical approval from the University of Dundee with an evaluation methodology that measures participants wellbeing before, immediately at the end of the project and a year later.

I’d recommend [Change Minds] to people who are interested in history archives and that kind of research, as well as people who are interested in understanding mental wellness itself and historical context on that. It has been interesting looking at these themes being come out from people from very different backgrounds.” (Change Minds Participant).
