We had a beautiful day and a great weather on the Ham House Heritage2Health day last 28th June. It consisted on a shared activity with public, student nurses and various health and well-being organisations, mostly local to Kingston, who gather to share a day of activities and networking.
Heritage2Health is an organisation, but also a system developed by nurses through Kingston University and St George’s University of London, School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education. An oportunity to think together about creating work environments that are good for people, an inclusive experience for participants from many ages, a chance to meet all the community partners and a learning experience for student nurses from Kingston University who have been preparing the day and designing how are they going to better support participants.
Participants where invited to join a team and pick and choose the activities they wanted to do that included visiting Ham House and Gardens, listening to story telling, playing with body art textiles, designing usable objects, watching a magic shadow Greek theatre performance, helping to make a world quilt, trying 17th century baking, Yoga and singing with myself.
Lucky with such a fantastic venue and lucky with the weather, it was great to meet you all and share our “Calipso” singing with you!
