Arts and Health Event February 12th
Whilst others may charge ludicrous amounts for training and conferences, our event on the 12th of February is free, free, free to those working in, or interested in the people’s republic of arts and health! Whilst - CHAOS & COMFORT - the ARTS - from LONG-TERM IMPACT to SOCIAL CHANGE - might explore fleeting moments of happiness, it will also allow time for some disquiet. Over half the tickets went last week, so if you want to attend, please register by clicking on the glittering dream below.
Judging by peoples responses and offers of sharing their work, we’ll be hearing about arts/health research/practice that explore:
- Substance Misuse
- Children and Young People’s Mental Health
- International Perspectives
