Enhancing the health and social wellbeing of children and young people living with HIV

Art is Key

CHIVA works with Turtle Key Arts to run a recurring creative engagement project with young adults who have grown up with HIV. Art is Key provides opportunities for young people to explore their experiences and share their stories with professional artists, using music, drama and spoken word. The project is for 17+ year olds who are living with HIV anywhere in the UK or Ireland.

Art is Key Online 2020

During July 2020 we ran an online Art is Key project which included dancing, poetry and creating a song together to share experiences of lockdown. During one of these sessions we asked participants what they valued from their CHIVA friendships. Answers included ‘Togetherness-Belonging-Acceptance‘
