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 want to 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.


These are very broad themes and could 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
  • Funding and resources
  • Health and social care and arts and cultural structures and systems
  • Health inequalities and social determinants of health
  • Inclusion and exclusion
  • Informing a critical research agenda
  • Local, national and international networks
  • Planet health and people’s health
  • Public Health
  • Practitioner and staff health and wellbeing
  • Resilience, prevention and early intervention
  • Social movements and radical change
  • Training, education and professional development
