Public engagement and campaigns

Creative projects & partnerships

Part of our work at Headway East London is to support our members to explore new things; to develop new skills and talents. Our public partnerships and campaigns not only help to facilitate and drive this forward, they also provide a platform for our membership to raise awareness of brain injury with the wider public.

“It gives me a sense of pride in my achievements, a boost to my wellbeing. It’s always amazing to feel that you have helped the wider brain injury cause; breaking down barriers and stigma”

– Dave, Headway member

Public Engagement

We have a specialist Public Engagement Officer working directly with our members and over the past couple of years we have partnered with a number of institutions including:

  • Wellcome Collection: “Minds Interrupted” workshops & talks (2016), Human Library event (2017)
  • Science Museum: Medicine Lates workshops & talks, Who Am I? (2018)
  • Barbican Centre: Community View workshops (2019), Young Poets collaboration (2019), Blue Planet Black Hole film & workshop event (2019)

The collaboration between us has been a really valuable experience from our perspective and I know that many people who came along to the events felt that it was a privilege to gain personal insights into what it can be like to live with brain injury” – Events Officer, Wellcome Collection
