Creativity and Wellbeing Week

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.

Creativity and Wellbeing 2018

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!

We will be announcing details of next year's festival in the next LAHF newsletter but look out for what promises to be an even bigger celebration of arts and health.

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.

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.
