Call for contributions to the International Conference Cultural Heritage for Mental Health 2

FARO, Museum Dr. Guislain and Iedereen Leest are teaming up to deliver the second International Conference Cultural Heritage for Mental Health 2 in Belgium on 10-11 December 2020. The conference wants to bring together individuals from the public, academic and voluntary sectors to promote learning, discussion and debate around interventions with cultural heritage with the aim of improving the wellbeing and health of people recovering from mental health illness or people in a vulnerable situation.

All contributions for this conference will be structured in the programme around three strands: Thinking Through Making; Green Spaces of Care; and Textual Healing. The organisers are looking for proposals from people working on creative, innovative or out-off-the-box projects on the three strands in a research or operational capacity that can contribute to this conference. The deadline for contributions is 1 February 2020.
