Creativity and Wellbeing Week

Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2020 Dates Announced

Following a hugely successful Creativity and Wellbeing Week held in 2019. London Arts in Health Forum, along with our partner the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance are delighted to announce that the next  festival will be held between 18-24 May 2020.

In 2019 the festival became national, after seven years of being based in London. The week was the biggest yet with the number of events doubling since last year.

Creativity and Wellbeing - another year!

This month’s Creativity and Wellbeing festival was the biggest we have ever run. There were nearly 350 events in London and 100 outside the capital and over 35,000 people attended talks, demonstrations, performances, exhibitions and discussions. Our thanks go to everyone who planned and staged events and everyone who attended. We are tired but very pleased with how it all went!

Creativity and Wellbeing Week

This year’s week will focus on different artforms - all the while looking at the theme of quality in arts and health. We are planning a series of events to address the ways in which different artforms contribute to health and wellbeing and how we measure and evaluate quality in the delivery of arts and health. Monday 4th June will focus on music, Tuesday on visual art, Wednesday will look at theatre and Thursday dance. Finally the week will close with a celebration of all things literary on Friday 8th June.

Creativity and Wellbeing Planning - 2018

Creativity and Wellbeing, the annual festival of arts and health, will take place from 2 June to 10 June 2018. LAHF will be organising lectures, talks and showcase events and will be pioneering some new activities too. There will also be opportunities to meet with fellow professionals with an interest in the connections between the arts and wellbeing. We are keen to encourage organisations to add their events to our website, the sooner you add your event(s) the sooner we can start promoting them.

Following the success of this year’s Creativity and Wellbeing festival we are pleased to announce the dates for next year’s celebration of health and creativity. The week will take place from 4th to 10th June 2018 and we expect it to be bigger than ever. This year, there were over 330 events with more than 35,000 people attending - so start planning for 2018 now!

Creativity and Wellbeing – thank you!

LAHF would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone involved in this year's Creativity and Wellbeing Week. The festival was the biggest yet and we are still recovering! An estimated 35,000 people attended different events right across London and beyond!

Our popular LAHF networking event in partnership with Paintings in Hospitals is back! – 14 June 2017

After a second sold-out Connect event last year, we’re pleased to announce that we will be holding another networking opportunity in partnership with Paintings in Hospitals.

Creativity and Wellbeing 2017

Next year will see the sixth annual festival of arts and health Creativity and Wellbeing Week. The week will take place from 12th-18th June with events in London and further afield. Plans are developing for the festival and we would like to encourage organisations to start thinking about how they will be involved. It is very straightforward to include events in the Week and we will be launching a big press and PR campaign to promote the Week and all the events within it.

The fifth Creativity and Wellbeing festival was the biggest and best yet with over 200 events and thousands of participants. Plans are now being developed for 2017 when Creativity and Wellbeing will take place from 12-18 June - start planning your events now! For those who missed it, the inaugural Mike White lecture was delivered by Fiona Sampson - a thought-provoking and eloquent examination of what happens when art meets humanity in the sphere of health and wellbeing.
