Arts and Chats is a series of creative workshops with a focus on creativity and socialising. The workshops will offer a broad range of creative activities programmed from traditional crafts, arts, to music and dance, with a focus on celebrating local cultural heritage and traditions. These are aimed at people who are linked in with Social Prescribing Networks in County Cork and will also be open to the public. The facilitators will be selected from a panel, they will be offered training on how to facilitate a safe, fun, group setting, and will be garda vetted with Cork County Council. This develops capacity to deliver further creative social prescribing initiatives in the county. The network of local libraries will be used for the workshops to broaden the geographical reach of the social prescribing networks.
