This webinar is for everyone with an interest in supporting children and families through the therapeutic power of storytelling. Whether you are an arts practitioner, health professional, teacher, parent or you are simply interested in supporting the well being of children and families, this webinar is for you, so welcome.
We are so excited to share our Puddle Jump project. It is a therapeutic storytelling project, which supports families in a creative and imaginative way especially at this difficult time. It combines storytelling sessions, well-being and story-based craft activities with online story resources.
Thanks to the support of the Arts Council of Wales’ Covid-19 Stabilisation Fund, Sparc – Valleys Kids Youth Arts Project has joined forces with our Future Families Team, to launch this innovative and timely intervention in July 2020. Since then we have been working with a team of specialist practitioners and storytellers and exploring feedback from the families who have been involved throughout.
You’ll have the chance to hear from the team who have been creating and delivering this work, the families who have taken part and local mental health and well being professionals who have contributed to the work. This is a pilot project but we think it has huge potential and we want to look at next steps in how it develops in the future.
Come along, listen to our story so far and be part of the conversation moving forward. How can we work most effectively with children and families, finding creative ways to engage support and empower them during this challenging time?
