Health & Wellbeing

This working group evolved after discussions at our launch conference at Nottingham Contemporary in 2017. In bringing together 150 people from the HE and Cultural Sectors to identify shared strategic challenges and issues, one of the topics that continually came up in conversation was Health & Wellbeing and the need to collectively address ways in which this affects working in the cultural sector, education and in universities. Health and Wellbeing emerged in a number of the different task focused themed groups as did a willingness to participate in future discussions and events.

Led by Rebecca Blackman and Mark Done at Arts Council England, this working group will present a forum event this autumn in Stoke on Trent, which will focus upon
celebrating age and aging research with links to Keele University. More information coming soon.
