Creativity and Wellbeing Week

Deadline announced for Creativity and Wellbeing Week

Event submissions are now being accepted for next summer’s Creativity and Wellbeing Week. The Week will take place from 2nd to the 8th June 2014 and all events for inclusion in the week will need to be submitted by 31st March 2014. We hope that we will be able to represent the widest possible range of events in the Week and would encourage everyone to plan and submit their events now. You can partially submit an event at any stage and then add to it once details are confirmed. It is advisable to do this to try to avoid key events clashing.

Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2014

Next year’s Creativity and Wellbeing Week will take place from 2nd June to 8th June 2014. Building on the success of the past two weeks, next year’s event will be a celebration of arts and health activity in London and beyond. In conjunction with the National Alliance for Arts Health and Wellbeing, we are hoping to be able to include events from right across England. This year’s week featured 70 events and reached an audience in excess of 10,000 people.

Creativity and Wellbeing Week feedback

No sooner has this year’s week finished than we have begun planning next year’s events. We hope to announce dates for the 2014 Creativity and Wellbeing Week in the not too distant future but as we make plans, we are really keen to hear your feedback on this year’s week of events. So, whether you ran an event, attended a performance, took part in a workshop or came to the opening lecture, we would be very grateful if you could take five minutes to give us some feedback.
