About this area of research

When speaking to the communities we work in and our partners, they tell us that personal and community wellbeing is hugely important. This is especially important since the pandemic.

Throughout 2021-22 the Peterborough Presents team have been exploring the role of creativity in supporting our wellbeing and how this relates to our programmes. We thought it would be useful to share some of the things we’ve found. We’ve pulled together a few links to research, organisations, toolkits and interesting quotes in case you’re interested in exploring this too. Just download the document below. It was created in February 2022.

For more information on projects we have delivered that have a wellbeing focus, visit our past projects – particularly Mint, Bretton Royalty and Lullaby for Peterborough.
