MAO Assembly: Follow our creative wellbeing season


Little creative strategies can make a big difference in the darker months.

This new season of MAO Assembly comes armed with creative tips and honest conversations about our own, and each other’s wellbeing during this time. Beginning on Blue Monday (18 January) and running through to March, follow #MAOAssembly on Instagram and here on the blog to discover more.

MAO Assembly is a creative way for you to have your say in shaping our digital conversations. In 2020, you reported on the impact of the pandemic on the cultural activities you enjoy, from the Isolation Music Diaries of Oxford-based musician, Martin Andrews to David Barron’s review of the virtual art classes which proliferated during lockdown.

To contribute to our latest topic of creative wellbeing or to suggest our next season, use the hashtag #MAOAssembly on Instagram (@mao_gallery) or write to us at
