…the whole of the moon

As I welcome our international friends to the UK, all things are set for Wednesday 7th and 2020+ Arts, Society & Public Health. We are now making tickets available as last minute cancellations occur, so click HERE to be added to the first come, first serve list.

Please don’t be late for the day which begins at 10:30. As well as hearing from different cultures and their explorations of arts and health, we’ll share work from around the North West Region and further afield. If time permits, we’ll start to think about where we might like to be by 2020 as a movement, and begin to reimagine how we might get there.

It’s been lovely to take care of friends from Lithuania these last few days and a big thank you to all of you who have so kindly taken time out to share your practice and research. Next week sees more visits and trips as our final international guests from Finland and Japan arrive. So a big thanks in advance, to those of you who are going to meet, greet and host our colleagues and friends. A special thanks to the Tiltas Trust for enabling Ieva and Simona’s visit.

A Symposium Investigating Connections between Culture, Society and Health & Wellbeing 
I’m pleased to say that Arts for Health’s very own, Dr. Rebecca Gordon-Nessibit is one of the two keynote speakers at an event in Bexhill on October 30th. Sharing her evidence synthesis of arts participation and its longitudinal relationship to health, she’ll be sharing the platform with Baroness Kay Andrews, author of the Welsh Government report, “Culture and Poverty: Harnessing the power of the arts, culture and heritage to promote social justice in Wales.” To find out more about this event, click on the photograph below.
