The Arts Connect Thrive research and development bursaries were created to support and invest in the cultural sector to innovate their practice, in particular their digital work with children and young people aged 0-25yrs.
Thrive recipients have been exploring new ways of evolving their artistic/creative practice through developing audiences, engagement or participation and growing and adapting their current offer through digital approaches.
The Thrive sharing events are designed to inspire and inform the arts and cultural sector. Each Thrive recipient will share their learning and findings from their research and development journey to date.
The theme at this event is: Well-being, diversity, equality and inclusion
Research question: How can we use stories, specifically audio dramas to improve the provision of education on sexual health and healthy relationships?
