How important are the arts to healthy ageing? – 15 June 2017

If you work with older people or are interested in how the arts can maintain good health in later life, come along to our partnership event with RADA on Thursday 15 June at which we’ll be hosting an informative panel discussion on arts and ageing. This is an opportunity for you to bring your knowledge up to speed about recent successful projects using the arts to improve health and wellbeing in later life.

LAHF partners with Great Ormond Street Hospital and RADA

For Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2017, LAHF is exploring how the arts and creativity can have a considerable role in enhancing our health and wellbeing throughout the life course. With the resources, support and buy-in from key decision makers, the arts can realise their potential to generate wellbeing, improve our health and social care services, and create a healthy, more equal society. LAHF's partnership events highlight organisations that are leading the way and showcasing best practice in how arts and health professionals can work together to achieve these goals.

Training for clinicians - 30 June 2016

LAHF is offering a short introductory course for doctors, allied health professionals and nurses interested in learning more about the potential of the arts to impact on health. The evening will explore historical perspectives on what health and wellbeing has meant to different ages and cultures, examine key evidence for the impact of arts and culture participation, and for specific arts in health interventions and look at specific case studies of arts in health in practice.

LAHF Open Event

On 3rd July, LAHF is opening its doors to share our plans for the next couple of years and to invite you to tell us how you think we can best support your work. Every year we run a survey to invite input and suggestions. We are now planning to supplement this with an open event to ask for your ideas, thoughts, suggestions and feedback to help ensure that the work we do has the most impact to support everyone working in the field of arts and health.

Creativity and Wellbeing Week closing event

LAHF is delighted to announce that the closing event for this year’s Creativity and Wellbeing Week will bring together celebrated novelist and journalist Lionel Shriver and ethicist Deborah Bowman to explore the connections between creativity and wellbeing in a fascinating evening drawing together the worlds of health and the arts with conversation and readings. Designed in partnership with Community Learning at Tate Modern, LAHF is proud to present this exciting discussion event to conclude London Creativity and Wellbeing Week.
