Programme

DAY 1 – THURSDAY 31ST OCTOBER

Developing a collaborative regional strategy for arts and health, and Annual General Meeting

Introduction: Our collaborative regional strategy identifies loneliness, mental health and social prescribing as regional priorities.

Collaboration: At what geographic scale does collaboration between arts and health providers and practitioners make sense to you?

We will learn about collaborative work in three different localities: the Community Connections social prescribing project in South Ward in Weston-super-Mare; work across Torbay led by Torbay Culture; and strategic initiatives with Cornwall County Council.

Co-production: how do we ensure that people with lived experience of ill-health are part of our discussions and plans at every stage? Panel discussion

Breakout sessions will give you an opportunity to contribute to the development of the regional strategy and to get creative.

DAY 2 – FRIDAY 1ST NOVEMBER

Partnership with Public Health England South West: Loneliness and Mental Health

On September 18th and October 1st Public Health England South West and Arts & Health South West will lead webinars on how arts and culture can help tackle loneliness. We will build on these webinars in a day of talks and discussions on Day 2 of the AHSW Annual Conference.

Keynote: Dr Daisy Fancourt, Associate Professor at University College London

Breakout sessions will offer opportunities to make connections with people working across the fields of arts, culture, health and social care
