Creativity & Wellbeing Week 18-24 May 2020: Positive Futures

*** PLEASE Note ***

New website coming soon, please do not upload your events until the new website is launched, we hope this will be by the end of January 2020

 

In partnership with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance we are delighted to announced the next Creativity and Wellbeing week will take place 18-24 May 2020.

A new collaborative partnership of Creative Festivals is aiming to turn May 2020 into a month of creativity and culture:

Age of Creativity: throughout May 2020
Get Creative Festival: 9-17 May 2020
Creativity & Wellbeing Week: 18-24 May 2020

With creativity and wellbeing now high on the agenda in policy across culture, health, ageing, social connectedness and communities, the time has never been better to come together to discuss how we can work together to support opportunities for everyone, regardless of who they are or where they are, to participate in culture and creativity.

Across the three festivals, we will be focused on reaching out to more people, working towards positive futures and looking at mental health in young people, climate change, ageing through the life course, and public health and everyday creativity; but we welcome events and activities that relate to any health, wellbeing or wellness issue or creativity more broadly - these are open and inclusive festivals and we want to showcase whatever you are doing!

We have scheduled pre-meetings across the country which will provide opportunities to hear about the Creative Festivals taking place in May 2020 and start planning your involvement in the festivals.

Our theme this year is Positive Futures.

We will be looking at mental health in young people, climate change, ageing through the life course, and public health and everyday creativity; but we welcome events that relate to any health, wellbeing or wellness issue - this is an open festival and we want to showcase whatever you are doing!

There is compelling and growing evidence that arts and culture can help us keep well, improve our health outcomes and live longer, higher quality lives.
