About the event

Emily Bradfield has an MSc in Cultural Events Management from De Montfort University and a BA (Hons) in Humanities with Art History from the Open University.  She works as Community Learning Manager at Cambridge Community Arts, Grants and Community Engagement Manager at Cambridgeshire Community Foundation and is a part-time lecturer in Arts and Festivals Management at De Montfort University, Leicester.  In addition to publishing her research into arts and wellbeing as a discussion paper, she has just published a chapter on the Mexican Day of the Dead Festival in Focus on World Festivals, Newbold and Jordan (eds.) (2016) with Goodfellow Publishers Oxford.

Emily will talk about her research and work with learners on an arts and wellbeing course at Cambridge Community Arts, who were invited to create a visual map of their experiences on the course and the impact that being creative had on their personal wellbeing.
