Creativity and Wellbeing Week happened for the first time in 2012 and has grown to be a major festival highlighting work going on aroudn arts and health. It is easy to submit events ' simply click on the 'Submit an event' button on the right of this page where you can upload details of your events.
There is a growing body of evidence indicating the profound effect engagement in the arts and creativity can have on health and wellbeing. The arts bring us alive, nourish our curiosity, help us learn ' they change the places in which we are treated ' and make them places we might want to be, they can improve the relationship between clinician and patient, and they give us the courage to face our own frailties and strengths.
With debates and discussions, performances and exhibitions, tours and practical sessions, the Week is an opportunity to find out more, make connections, be inspired, and shape the future of arts, creativity and wellbeing. You can see plenty of examples of previous events from 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 on this site.
