Thursday 23 February 2023


09:30 – 12:30 GMT


Online via Zoom



Delivering creative health activities to participants living with complex health or psychosocial conditions often requires specialised knowledge, skills, and support. This participatory learning workshop on 23 February will review recent research on the impact of working in this way. It will also feature a panel of practitioners who work with different conditions.

Led by Julia Puebla Fortier, Arts & Health South West Research Associate, the workshop will explore some of the following questions:

  • What knowledge about specific conditions does an artist benefit from knowing?
  • How do you adapt activities to be appropriate and accessible to different participants?
  • What skills and training can be beneficial for artists?
  • What’s the role of specialist partner organisations or support people, including family?
