The Power of Conversation

We all know that we feel a lot better if we have a good chat.  Well Wolverhampton Arts and Heritage Service (WAVE) have developed Conversation Clubs where people get together to talk.  The Conversation Clubs have been running for over 2 years.  The success of the clubs at targetting loneliness and isolation has meant that WAVE have now secured funding in partnership with the Creative Health CiC to establish Conversation Clubs in Community venues across Wolverhampton.

The Creating Conversations blog has some wonderful stories and pictures about the impact this simple idea, is having on people’s lives. An inspirational project which is also demonstrating the role museums can play in supporting their local communities.

    Thanks Emma! Volunteer Jane Round is working on the blog to make it as user friendly as possible and we’ll add a lot more images soon. MeetMe@WAG wasn’t programmed to meet in December as the normal slot fell on Boxing Day, but everyone was so disappointed that we’ve popped in an extra session next Wednesday (19th) when the topic of conversation will be……Christmas!
