Wellness Compass Week 1 – Distanced: A Social Guide

The people of Lincolnshire’s creative guide to nurturing wellbeing. Keeping our bodies and minds active, healthy and strong, together.

Over a six-week period from Friday 1 May 2020, participants are encouraged to document themselves undertaking cultural and creative activities, and to submit these short videos as part of a mass-participatory community project that nurtures wellbeing.

Week One – Distanced: A Social Guide – NHS Step 1: Connecting with other people

Our inspiration for this project has come from the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing and week one’s theme is Staying Connected. If you’re using creative activity to keep in contact with friends, loved ones, and your wider community we would love to see your short video diary demonstrating what you do and why. It could be a quiz night, a virtual pub, or a shared creative video project.

To give you some inspiration the LPAC team have shared some examples on YouTube of how they are using culture and creativity to nurture their wellbeing, but this is just to get the ball rolling.

What we are really interested in is the approach of our community members. We want to hear your stories, hear see creative adventures and learn from your advice. For more information contact our producer Dawn Richmond-Gordon.
