Arts Development UK will host a national seminar on 1st December 2015 aimed at officers involved in both policy and practice related to arts, health and wellbeing commissioning and service provision. The seminar will also assist health professionals to learn more about the benefits of applying arts and cultural participation to improve health and wellbeing.

The arts, health and wellbeing seminar will illustrate best practice arts services in both England and Wales, giving delegates networking opportunities and an opportunity to take part in a series of activities illustrating arts, health and wellbeing. The seminar will demonstrate how working through arts participation, individuals, organisations and communities can increase participation and access to health and wellbeing while also increasing confidence and ability, community development and social cohesion, and bringing groups of disadvantaged or hard to reach people to increase their quality of life. The day will allow delegates to hear about policy and practice from a range of informed speakers and presenters from Wales and England.

The day is aimed at arts and cultural organisations, artists, those in the health, wellbeing and social care sectors, local and national government policy makers, and those working in the voluntary and independent sectors.

The seminar will take place at St David’s Hall in Cardiff. For booking information please visit
