Victoria Hume writes about her reflections on working with the Blood Sugars project and their involvement with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing International Conference in 'The view from here, wherever here is: Arts, health inequality and activism'.

The London Arts and Health Forum blog is an informal forum in which to share news and opinions about culture and wellbeing. 

 

Victoria Hume is a singer-songwriter and composer, as well as an arts manager and researcher specialising in the meeting points between the arts, medicine and health. She is currently based at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, working with the medical humanities initiative at WiSER (Wits Institute for Social & Economic Research), the Health Communication Research Unit, and the Wits School of Arts.

Before this she was an arts manager in the NHS for 15 years. She recently received a distinction for a Masters in Music and Health Communication focused on hospital-induced delirium. Her most recent EP, Closing (released on Lost Map records), featured on Lauren Laverne’s best of 2016 playlist (BBC Radio6 Music).

 

In her blog post on LAHF 'The view from here, wherever here is: Arts, health inequality and activism', Victoria writes about her reflections on working with the Blood Sugars project and their involvement with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing International Conference.
