Description

Creative Health: Building Alliances for Social Change in Norfolk

Norfolk Arts Forum Conference and AGM 2017

This conference will focus on the findings and recommendations from the recently published All-Party Parliamentary landmark Report and Inquiry ‘Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing’ in the context of health and social care priorities in Norfolk. Additionally, it will include a presentation on ‘The Art of the Possible’, newly released expert guidance on commissioning arts and cultural providers for better health and wellbeing published by the Cultural Commissioning Programme in partnership with the Association for Directors of Public Health and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. A range of case studies and venue visits will showcase some of the excellent arts, health and wellbeing initiatives and collaborations currently underway in Norfolk.

The conference is aimed at colleagues working within the statutory and voluntary health and social care sectors and cultural organisations and practitioners working in, and/or interested in working in health and social care contexts and settings. It will provide a focused arena for creative thinking about how we can begin to forge new strategic alliances and identify new partnership opportunities to further arts, health and wellbeing collaboration in Norfolk.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Dr Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Researcher APPGAHW | Cultural Partnerships and Enquiry, King's College London - Author of Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing

  • Dr Louise Smith, Director of Public Health, Norfolk County Council

  • Catherine Underwood, Director for Health and Integration, Norfolk County Council, Adult Social Services

  • Jessica Harris, Cultural Commissioning Manager, National Council for Voluntary Organisations - Co-author of The Art of the Possible
