The March Network has drawn together a long list of creative initiatives that are taking place during lockdown, and during the rest of the year.
You can find the list here.
The MARCH Network is one of 8 national networks funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as part of the 2018 Cross-Council Mental Health Plus call to further research into mental health.
MARCH focuses on social, cultural and community assets – which includes the arts, culture, heritage sites, libraries, green spaces, community centres, social clubs, community associations and volunteer groups – and the role they play in enhancing public mental health and wellbeing, preventing mental illness, and supporting those living with mental health conditions. There are an estimated 1 million of these assets in the UK.
The MARCH Network proposes that these Assets build Resilient Communities and therefore lie at the heart of Mental Health (M-ARC-H)
