During the lockdown we are experimenting with online collections chats, as part of our programme of trial social prescribing events with local health and wellbeing providers. Each chat takes one or two objects from the collection as a starting point for a one hour open conversation. We'll post the notes from each one here.
Thursday 14 May
Our first chat, testing out the idea with service providers from Robert Darbishire GP Practice, Manchester Rape Crisis, Manchester Buzz NHS Network, Women's Voices, and The Place Fallowfield. A lovely conversation and debrief afterwards - we didn't get as far as the second object, so that will have to wait for another day. With thanks to Shabana, Patsy, Nadia, Anni, Akhter, Sue, Laura, Meg, Ruth, Rosie, Ronan and Liz.
