The Art of Wellbeing
14 June 2019
A Creative People and Places symposium exploring the relationship between meaningful arts engagement and individual and community wellbeing, hosted in partnership with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance

As part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, this symposium will explore the meeting places between the culture and health sectors, with a focus on wellbeing.

The event will put the relationship between collaborative and participatory art and the wellbeing of individuals and communities under the magnifying glass. Does working collaboratively with people to choose and create art that is of, with and by their community have a lasting impact on wellbeing? What about art's capacities to unsettle and challenge? Can art really make people feel better?

If you are thinking about participatory approaches to culture, place and wellbeing, The Art of Wellbeing will give you the opportunity to debate these questions, reflect on recent practice, and to think about how we evidence and describe the impact of this work.

Standard delegate ticket: £65+VAT
Freelance / independent / student delegate ticket: £30+VAT (there are 20 available on a first come first served basis).
