Creative First Aid

Caitlin Marshall & Lizzie Rose

Everyone is born with innate creativity, but so many of us close ourselves off from it because we get an impression that we aren’t ‘good enough’ at it. Science tells us that doing something creative immediately affects our brain chemistry, reducing stress, relieving anxiety and increasing happy hormones. Join the Creative First Aid team to access your creativity – no experience required! Learn how and why creativity is an essential tool for accessing joy, connection, and delight to support mental health and wellbeing. Plus try out a range of prescriptions including mark-making, drawing, painting, writing and storytelling. 


Please note: Seating is unallocated. 

Bookseller BOOKFACE will be onsite to sell books, which can be signed by the authors after the event.
