Critical Friends:
an interdisciplinary exchange in arts and health

19th September 2007
The Lowry, Salford Quays

10am to 3pm.

Over the last 3 years the Invest to Save: Arts in Health project has been working with partners in the health and arts sectors to better understand the relationship between creativity, culture the arts and well-being. This event will bring together critical friends from the arts and health field to explore the emerging research from this project and contribute to the publication of the final report.

The event will be chaired by Dr Nick Baylis, co-director of the Well-Being Institute at the University of Cambridge and will feature the work of film-maker Hafsah Naib, writer David Gaffney and artist Clemens Kogler. Work from projects across the North West Region will be shared including Arthur and Martha, BlueSci, Wear Purple, START in Salford and Pendle Leisure Service, Arts on Prescription projects and the Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital, Alder Hey.

This event marks the start of a dissemination process that includes a series of seminars, media events and conferences, where the research findings will provide inspiration for ongoing discussion and development within the arts and health field.
