I'm investigating what I need in order to be well as a person of colour living at a time when those in power describe attempts by people like me to gain equality as a "Culture War". Wars are attritional. They have an impact on us mentally and physically.
My project involves giving unsolicited small wellbeing grants to black creative workers, the only proviso being that they spend the money on something that benefits their mental/physical health and then send a short report on what they did and whether it helped.
The plan is to build a narrative showing people taking care of themselves and encouraging a general conversation about what "wellbeing" looks like.
I'll share anonymous extracts of those reports via my social media channels.
