Arts Play Health Conference – 9-10 September 2020

Despite evidence that shows the arts and play have close connections in how they contribute to and achieve health outcomes for children and adults, there has been a dearth of action to encourage knowledge-exchange between these fields or to understand how the processes across these interventions may be similar. This conference aims to address this gap, encouraging shared learning and asking critical questions that will support us to move forward in arts and play with new-found insight.

This conference is for anyone working within or interested in the use of arts and/or play interventions for health and wellbeing.

The organisers have issued a call for abstracts for 20-60 minute slots which can be filled with spoken or poster presentations, workshops, or group activities (deadline 20 March 2020).
