Event description
The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance’s first annual conference will be held in Newcastle on 21 and 22 March 2019

About this Event

The conference is aimed at those working with the arts/heritage/creativity and health/wellbeing - or interested in learning more about this work. We hope it will be an opportunity to explore the particular challenges and opportunities presented by a time of unprecedented growth and public interest.

Tickets will be priced at £120 for two days (£90 students/lower income) or £75 for one day (£50 student/lower income).

The conference will focus on the following themes:

Culture:

What does ‘culture’ mean to us?

How does health and wellbeing work in the arts, museums and libraries intersect with cultural histories and identities?

How do cultural concerns like food, craft, nature and spirituality fit with this work?

Digital cultures: Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality – future culture and future health

How does work with culture, health and wellbeing address social inequalities, and create sustainable social practices?

Practice:

In a time of unprecedented interest in and momentum within the sector, what models of practice might help us grow and thrive?

How can we develop the relationship between practice and research? What role does creative research have in our health and wellbeing?

If you would like to be part of discussions around any of these questions, please get in touch with Victoria (Director) or Hayley (Events Coordinator) at info@culturehealthandwellbeing.org.uk
