Visual Evaluator Opportunity with the National Centre for Creative Health

The National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH) are looking for a Freelance Visual Evaluator to visually document ‘A Heart Shaped Place’ an event happening in the Forest of Dean on 16th July, as part of their Creative Health Huddles programme.

Deadline for applications: 9am, Monday 20th June 2022

Fee: £500 (approximately 2 days)

Date of event: Saturday 16th July 2022

Location of event: The Wesley, Forest of Dean Community and Arts Centre, Belle-vue Road, Cinderford

The National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH) is looking to recruit an artist to visually document ‘A Heart Shaped Place,’ an event run by the Forest Voluntary Action Forum in Gloucestershire. The event’s purpose is to showcase co-production and how it can be used to change mental health service delivery in the Forest of Dean. It will take place in July, marking the culmination of a research and scoping project that aims to kickstart the co-production of a new community based mental health service in the Forest.

The event will be a combination of co-produced creative workshops delivered by local arts and community organisations and engaging discussions around what a new mental health service in the Forest might look like. It is anticipated the event will be attended by community organisations, people with their own lived experience of mental health issues, healthcare and public service professionals, artists, and community members with an interest in the development of a new service. It is an opportunity for local people and organisations to hear about the research and scoping project and to discuss ideas for moving ahead with a new co-produced mental health service.

The role of the visual evaluator will be to document discussions and learning around creativity and co-production on the day and to present this after the event in a visually exciting and accessible way.

The event is running as part of the NCCH’s Creative Health Huddles programme. The Huddles are interdisciplinary learning activities for groups to explore co-production with creativity and lived experience at the heart. They are an opportunity to explore and develop new ways of responding to and understanding health and wellbeing through co-production.
