Engage is the UK’s leading organisation for the gallery education sector. We exist to promote access, understanding and education of galleries and the visual arts. We work in partnership with local authorities and others on meaningful creative interventions, as well as training, advocacy and sharing best practice.
Engage Cymru coordinates the Wales Arts for Health Network with support from Arts Council Wales Sharing Together funding. Over the years we have delivered a wide range of arts and health projects for socially isolated older people and those experiencing mental health issues, including Wired at Oriel Myrddin https://www.engage.org/wired and a 3 year project supported by the Rayne Foundation engaging older people in mental health settings and galleries https://www.engage.org/older-people.aspx. We also coordinated the Art of Health in Wales symposium with leading professionals in the field. https://www.engage.org/engcymru16AH
