Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance 2021 Awards – extended deadline

Nominate the people and projects using creativity and culture to address recent health, inequality and climate challenges by the extended deadline of 12 March, for the CHWA 2021 Climate Award.

In 2020 the world faced the realities of three emergencies which threaten the wellbeing of people, place and planet. A global pandemic that has revealed growing global and local inequalities – including the impacts of racism on our health as a society and as individuals – and a climate and ecological emergency. These cannot be seen as separate concerns. Health, inequality and climate are interwoven consequences of how we as humans treat each other and the world around us.

Joining forces with The Happy Museum Project and Culture Declares Emergency, the Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance want to shine a light on the people and projects using creativity and culture to address these challenges.

CHWA are looking  for projects/organisations that are recognising the connections between climate, health inequalities and creativity/culture.

Submissions could include projects that link mental health, climate justice and creativity, for example, or connect nature, culture and wellbeing. They might be about building “safe and brave places”, grassroots movements, internal campaigns that are raising awareness, or organisations instigating systemic changes in approaches to procurement, commissioning and selection of work and resources. These are just suggestions and CHWA are happy to be surprised and delighted by practices never considered.

Important Dates for Applicants: 

Submission deadline is 5pm, Friday 12 March. Please email your application to awards[at]

Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by the Alliance soon after and their projects published on the CHWA website.

Winners will be announced at an open online event as part of the CHWA 2021 Conference: A Culture of Care on Friday 23 April 2021.
