Culture, Health and Wellbeing International Conference 2021


In partnership with the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance

During the global crisis, the arts and creativity have helped us navigate uncertainty and been agents of hope. We want the conference to provide a space for exploring our individual and collective experiences and articulating a vision for the future.  We will showcase inspiring work from across the field and encourage lively debates informed by different perspectives on the arts, creativity, culture, health, wellbeing and inequalities. We will place lived experience and co-production at the heart of the programme. We will be spanning policy, research and practice and learning from across the whole ecosystem.

The programme is designed to engage audiences from around the world with key notes in the morning, afternoon and evening and interactive sessions that take into account different time zones for presenters and audiences.

Much of the work reflects the impact of the pandemic and the conference is an opportunity to reach across the world and tell stories of our different experiences while finding joy in sharing connection.

INEQUALITY * POWER * SUSTAINABILITY – Our themes for the conference will cover many issues including:

  • Access to the arts and culture and cultural democracy
  • Community development, grass-roots and asset-based approaches
  • Co-production and participation
