Following the recent Speak-Listen-Reset-Heal conference on racism in the UK’s cultural sector, Inc Arts – a UK-wide network of arts organisations – announced the launch of Inc Arts Minds, a fund to support the emotional well-being of those affected by systemic and structural racism in the arts.

From 12:00 pm on Wednesday 11 November, anyone in the arts who experiences racism can sign up on the Inc Arts website to participate in Healing Circles, which will be facilitated by Chanua Health.

Participants will have up to four sessions per person, led by trained psychologists and psychotherapists with a maximum of ten people per group (subject to availability).

Additional support will be offered via the creation of peer support networks in the coming weeks.
