Annual Survey

This is an important tool for us in working out what we offer members and also what goes in (and out) of the newsletter. And we rely on your input. Over recent years, the newsletter has become a really important barometer of work in arts in health in London and beyond so it would be great if you could take five minutes to fill in the survey here: www.surveymonkey.com/s/LAHF before Monday 23 January.

Creativity and Wellbeing Week reimagined

We are happy to share that, alongside our partners the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance (CHWA), we have re-imagined Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2020.

We may not be able to come together in the same way, but we do want to provide a space where people can celebrate the incredible individuals and organisations that work in this sector. 

Creativity and Wellbeing Week Update

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2020. As a festival focusing on health and wellbeing, we feel as though it would be irresponsible to encourage public events at this time. We understand that this is not yet official government advice, however, given the timing of the festival, we are concerned that it will be taking place at a possible peak of the virus.

This is a fast-moving situation and is entirely unprecedented for all of us, so please bear with us as we navigate the next few weeks.

Sign up for Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2020

We are delighted to announce the Creativity & Wellbeing Week 2020 website is now live with an amazing new look and lots of information about this year’s festival, taking place 18-24 May.

We partner with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance to run the UK-wide festival which promotes the importance of arts and culture on people’s health and wellbeing.
