Sheila has been invited to be on a panel at Creative People and Places and the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance’s upcoming symposium The Art of Wellbeing.
The Art of Wellbeing
A symposium exploring the relationship between meaningful arts engagement and individual and community wellbeing.
A partnership between Creative People and Places and the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance
University of Central Lancashire, Burnley Campus, 14 June 2019, 10.00 – 16.30
As part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week, this symposium hosted by the Creative People and Places network 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?
