MARCH Singing and Mental Health Sandpit
08 January 2020
For researchers, singing practitioners, commissioners and policy makers working in the field of singing as a community asset in relation to mental health, hosted in partnership with Snape Maltings and the Royal College of Music

The MARCH Singing and Mental Health Special Interest Group exists to establish and sustain a dialogue about group singing and mental health in order to strengthen praxis across arts and health settings in the UK, considering group singing both as a community-building asset, and as a targeted intervention in clinical contexts.

The aims of this Sandpit day are to

  • share experiences and research findings;
  • explore connections and contradictions;
  • consider potential ideas for future investigation / action;
  • develop plans for advancing those ideas.

This event, co-chaired by Dr. Dave Camlin, Phillipa Reive and Katherine Zeserson, is driven by a passionate commitment to bringing researchers from academic and non-academic contexts together with practitioners and policy makers to create a common reference point of knowledge and insights from which to frame further research enquiries, as well as to inform innovation in practice and associated action research or participatory action research programmes.
