Creativity and Wellbeing Week (4 - 10 June 2018) is an initiative of London Arts in Health Forum.
Creativity and Wellbeing Week happened for the first time in 2012 and has grown to be a major festival highlighting work going on around arts and health. There is a growing body of evidence indicating the profound effect engagement in the arts and creativity can have on health and wellbeing. The arts bring us alive, nourish our curiosity, help us learn – they change the places in which we are treated – and make them places we might want to be, they can improve the relationship between clinician and patient, and they give us the courage to face our own frailties and strengths. For a full schedule of what's happening during the week please visit the LAHF website: www.creativityandwellbeing.org.uk
