Presentation for the

Arts Play Health Conference 2021

Took place on 15th February 2021

A short video of the space:

A video was played while a den was created for the delegates in real-time. The den was constructed from audience suggestions to form a collective "Self-Care Share Den".

Participants were asked to share what types of spacial qualities and activities they felt would help them with their well-being.

Elements included duvets, cushions, nature, swimming in the sea, low lighting, reading, and puppies.
