About this Event

This conference investigates how creative health approaches and social prescribing can be used to connect and communicate life through generations. We invite both experts from around the world and also artists, performers, practitioners and experts by experience from local communities. Our aim is to provide interdisciplinary cohesion and a bridge between the academic world and the general public, between policy and third sector organisations. Join our debate, for two days (three hours on each day) of stimulating conversations between fascinating people. We will provoke, encourage, challenge, nourish your mind and your senses.

The event takes place on Zoom. Zoom link to follow
