Arts and Health Australia is excited to be partnering with the National Gallery of Victoria to present the 2014 international arts and health conference in Melbourne from 11 to 13 November, 2014.  This conference will present best practice and innovative arts and health programmes, effective health promotion and prevention campaigns, methods of project evaluation and scientific research.

Important dates to diarise:

  • Early Bird registrations close 30 September 2014

The National Gallery of Victoria is committed to ensuring that all people in the community have access to our permanent collections and special exhibitions.
Our NGV Access programmes are highly recognised and this was reinforced in February 2014 with our Access team winning the Arts Portfolio Award for Leadership in Disability Access.  The NGV strongly supports the role of the arts in healthcare. Creative activity has always been recognised to have beneficial effects on health and the quality of life. The arts, creativity and  imagination are a great driving force for health and wellbeing: they help keep the individual resilient, assist recovery and nurture a flourishing society.
