CHWA Regional Champions for the West Midlands, Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance


Are you based in the West Midlands region?

Are you passionate about culture/health/wellbeing and ready for a new challenge?   

Do you want to be part of developing regional and national networks to support the culture/health and wellbeing sector? 

Stand to be a CHWA Regional Champion for the West Midlands

We are looking for one regional champion with an arts background and one with a museums background.

The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance is a national sector support organisation that represents everyone who believes that creative and culture participation can transform the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.

The work of the Alliance is steered by a group of Regional Champions from each of the nine UK regions. As we are faced with more and more global challenges, from health inequalities to climate change, the role of regional and local activity is increasingly vital. We are looking for candidates who share this belief and have passion, commitment, and existing regional networks that can support this collective endeavour.

The nominated Regional Champions will be joining LENS champions from the region, bringing together representation and expertise from across museums, arts and lived experience. Working together, the champions will share information from the region with the national steering groups and vice versa, and collaborate to respond to the needs of the sector within the region
