March 2019 – Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance: first annual conference

The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance is a national organisation representing everyone who believes that cultural engagement can transform our health and wellbeing. The Alliance ‘s first annual conference, Cultures of Health and Wellbeing will be held in the Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums in Newcastle on the 21st and 22nd March 2019.

The conference is aimed at those working with the arts/heritage/creativity and health/wellbeing – or interested in learning more about this work. It will be an opportunity to explore the particular challenges and opportunities presented by a time of unprecedented growth and political and public interest in the field.

The Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance is a sector support organisation (launched in March 2018) for the cultural sector, funded by Arts Council England. It is here to connect everyone who believes that creative and cultural engagement can transform our health and wellbeing, and to provide support and information and networking opportunities for its membership, the wider sector, and anyone interested in the relationship between the arts, heritage, creativity and health and wellbeing.

It works in partnership with organisations across both the cultural and health sectors – as well as education, criminal justice and many other areas. Membership of the Alliance is free – https://www.culturehealthandwellbeing.org.uk/
