NHS Hires £45,000 Manager of Performing Arts

As Britain braced for Coronavirus in early March, South West Yorkshire Partnership got their priorities straight by hiring a £45,000-per-annum arts and health programme manager, who is responsible for Calderdale’s Living a Larger Life programme, the mission statement of which states:

“Happiness and love. Pain, longing and loss. Reconciliation and redemption. Our sense of self and our way of connecting to ourselves and to others at an emotional level. That is what art in all its forms can help us with. Art can heal us. Art can help us to tell new stories which will take us to new places, and art can help us to tell the old stories in a way that connect at a deeper level”

  • visual and performing arts, including crafts, dance, film, literature, music and singing, as well as the culinary arts, gardening and sports
  • Concert halls, galleries, heritage sites, libraries, museums and theatres
  • Incorporating incorporate social inclusion, value diversity, enhance cultural expression
