Creative Dundee

A Year of Lockdown: Creativity & Wellbeing

In a lunchtime session, on Tuesday 23 March, organised by Creative Dundee, Shaper/Caper will help you explore mindfulness and health in a time of lockdown.

It’s been almost one year since the beginning of the lockdown. It’s been a resilience-testing 12 months – culture and creativity have played a significant role in people’s wellbeing during periods of isolation/overcrowdedness. 

To mark the date, and together work on ways to support each other & build on this resilience, we invite you to a special Creativity & Wellbeing lunchtime event. Our session collaborators Shaper/Caper will offer some insights on their own practice, and give you practical tasters of yoga at the desk and mindfulness. 

Bring your lunch and join us in this laid back session on Tuesday, 23 March at 1pm. This free event is open to anyone with an interest in creativity and wellbeing.

Creative Dundee exists to support creative talent to base, grow and sustain their practice in and around Dundee, by amplifying and connecting the city’s creativity. 

We create the spaces to enable opportunities, galvanise action and profile the city so that residents and visitors alike can access, experience and enjoy Dundee’s active creative scene. We lead collaborative projects which generate local, national and international opportunities for people and the city – to support Dundee’s strong creative ecology. @Creative_Dundee
