Arts, Health and Wellbeing: Connecting Research, Policy and Practice

10th April 2019, 14:00 - 17:00
LIFT, St Pancras Room, 45 White Lion Street, London N1 9PW

An afternoon workshop that sets out to present a number of presentations and perspectives, articulate a range of developments, share information on some current research initiatives, as well as on new interventions and research publications in the arts sector.

In 2017, The Culture Capital Exchange launched an Arts and Health Forum as a discussion and knowledge exchange platform for member researchers and staff as well as those working in the arts, cultural sectors and/or health related fields. So far the forum has hosted a number of events and supported the development of funding bids. It acts as a mini-hub within TCCE, creating informal spaces for researchers working broadly within these subject areas to share their research, connect with colleagues and share their work with new audiences.  

 

This academic year, they are continuing the work of the forum with a series of activities over the coming months focusing on the following themes including:  Feminisms and Technology: New imaginings for future care and well-being (March 29) and Cyborg Futures (June 18).

 

This event on April 10 Arts, Health and Wellbeing: Connecting Research, Policy and Practice is an afternoon workshop that sets out to present a number of presentations and perspectives on this theme.

 

It will set out to articulate a range of developments, sharing information on some current research initiatives, as well as on new interventions and research publications in the arts sector. Presentations will be followed by group work and discussion on: the wider research, policy and practice landscapes in arts and health, who’s doing what, how these practices intersect, what gaps exist, as well as opportunities to network and hear from others with broad interests in this field.

 

The event is aimed at researchers, those working in knowledge exchange and public engagement, arts organisations as well as artists/creative practitioners, and those working in health and policy settings who are using or interesting in developing connections with the arts and culture sector and/or with the research base.

 

If you are a practitioner or a TCCE researcher working in the broad fields of arts and health and would like to use the workshop as an opportunity to talk briefly about your work, please do get in touch by emailing info@tcce.co.uk.

 
Price: £20, Free to TCCE member institutions researchers and staff (please book using your institutional email)
A limited number of free places are available to individual artists and culture workers. Please email info@tcce.co.uk with a short description of why this event might be helpful for your practice.
