The Art of Wellbeing

The Creative People and Places project is hosting an event looking at the relationship between wellbeing and creative arts:

A symposium exploring the relationship between meaningful arts engagement and individual and community wellbeing

Hosted by Creative People and Places network and Super Slow Way in partnership with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance

Where: University of Central Lancashire, Burnley Campus, 14 June 2019, 10:00 – 16:30

As part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, this symposium will explore the meeting places between the culture and health sectors, with a focus on wellbeing.

The event will put the relationship between collaborative and participatory art and the wellbeing of individuals and communities under the magnifying glass. Does working collaboratively with people to choose and create art that is of, with and by their community have a lasting impact on wellbeing? What about art’s capacities to unsettle and challenge? Can art really make people feel better?
