The Creative Gathering | Arts and Health Seminar, Derry

Tuesday 28 March, 10am to 4pm.

This event creates an opportunity for people to gather together from across Northern Ireland and beyond to explore and showcase the positive impact of the arts and creativity on the Health and Well-being of community living. There will be key presentations from experts in the fields of arts, health, education and business.

This seminar day is a significant showcase for a range of innovative arts and environmental arts programmes that are making a difference and have been developed and evaluated here in Northern Ireland. We are delighted to have secured experts in the field of arts, health, education, business and community as key contributors to the event.

Arts Care and Pushkin Trust who are hosting the event have partnered with the Public Health Agency, Children in Need and the Derry City and Strabane District Council over the last four years to develop and deliver a Town Arts, Health, Education and Well-being model that has produced positive outcomes in terms of community development and enhanced health and well-being. This Creative Gathering is part of this project and the outcomes of this four year arts engagement with the community in Strabane and more recently in Derry City will be presented at this event.

This event is targeted at teachers, lecturers, healthcare professionals, managers, directors, chief executives, board members, town planners, business personnel, researchers, arts professionals, artists, administrators, funders, local council personnel, MLAs, media and press personnel, community development personnel, carers, service users, charities, disability organisations, minority groups and voluntary organisations.
