There are very few tickets left for our event on October 7th. We will be operating a reserve list as soon as we are at capacity. Click HERE for more details and tickets. I can confirm that the day will have international presentations around arts and health development and aspirations from Lithuania, Japan and Finland.
Presentations from the UK will be loosely be divided into two areas around mental health and wellbeing & elders and dementia. We will find out about the work from:
Sarah Lawton and SHARING the MAKING and her socially-engaged project at the William Morris Gallery, in Walthamstow planning and implementing an older peoples pilot project, aiming to improve participants’ wellbeing and to ‘measure’ the impacts, using the UCL wellbeing measuring tool-kit.
Alongside all these presenters, there are a Wild-Cards who I'm going to make time and space for and include:
Dr Langley Brown will share The ARTLINES project and the gathering-in, and in some cases rescue, of a number of important archives that together document the scope and depth of arts and health practice and philosophy over the past 40 years; and of how - and why - these archives are now being acquired by the Wellcome Library.
