Vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based diets are buzzwords nowadays. There is so much, often very conflicting and contradictory, information in all sorts of media, including social media about the effects of our nutritional choices on our physical, mental and even emotional health and wellbeing in general.  Come to this talk for a bit of myth-busting and science, ideas and information. Bring your questions for the Q&A session at the end of the talk – I promise that it will be both useful and fun!

PLAYING WITH WORDS Claire Davies (The Greedy Wordsmith) and Gayle Johnson (Red Tree Writing)

Join Claire and Gayle for a morning of playful writing at True Story, Lord Mayors Walk, as part of
York’s first ever city wide Wellbeing Day. During this interactive session, we will look at how writing can help you reconnect with yourself, tune into your creativity and guide you through life. Together, in an informal, supportive environment, we’ll explore our personal histories with writing, discuss the various forms of writing available to us and play with a few simple writing prompts.  Everybody has the right to write, and this session will get you going whether you already have a personal writing habit or not.
