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?
