RSPH Arts and Health Awards 2013 – deadline for nominations – 5 July 2013

Creative Arts and the Criminal Justice System in Secure Settings and the Community

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) Arts and Health Awards aim to recognise significant contributions to research and practice in this rapidly developing field. The awards are now in their sixth year, and previous awards have recognised excellent work in the fields of music and health, arts and mental health, arts and health inequalities and the role of arts in promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people. This year, the awards will focus on the value of creative arts for young people or adults in custodial or secure settings or supervised by criminal justice agencies in the community.

Nominations should be received by Friday 5 July 2013 and will be considered by a special Awards Committee established by the RSPH. A decision will be announced by the end of July 2013, and the awards will be presented during the Annual Conference of the RSPH, in September 2013.
