According to a local UK newspaper, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which has participated in Slow Art Day now for several years, has begun a multi-year research project with the University of Huddersfield.
The focus of the research is to “explore the visitor experience at the park and what impact it could have on happiness and wellbeing.”
On Slow Art Day this year, the Sculpture Park will run two workshops – Mindful Moments for adults, and one for families, Move, Make and Meditate.
A growing number of museums are combining Slow Art Day with mindfulness and meditation. The Phoenix Art Museum, also a longtime participant in Slow Art Day, organized a summer mindfulness series in 2017 and we held a webinar with them to talk about the experience (watch the webinar here).
