The Cultural Prescription – How can the arts support Health and Wellbeing?

November 16, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

In a time of change, how can the arts support the Health and Wellbeing agenda? Can culture feed both body and soul, and if so, how?

The new National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing will set the context within museums, illustrate current practice and explain future opportunities and events planned for 2016.

The day will also include best practice examples from York Teaching Hospital, Leeds Museums and Galleries and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, to stimulate and inspire.┬áThere will be a particular focus on identifying and understanding funding opportunities. The morning will look at how Cultural Commissioning can support Wellbeing projects, with a practical workshop in the afternoon focusing on Grants for the Arts, from both the funder and artist’s perspective.

Museum Development Yorkshire and Arts Council England have developed this event to combine expert overview with practical activities.

Find out more about how museums and galleries are successfully working with people with dementia, those with long-term health conditions and people with mental health problems.

Consider how the arts can support the wellbeing of all its visitors and learn more about potential funding opportunities.
