Creativity and Wellbeing Week in London from the 4th-10th June 2018

This looks like a really wonderful opportunity to see and experience how the creative arts and mental health combine.

I’ve just pulled a quote from the website, which describes beautifully the thinking behind how engagement with the arts both ignites our imaginations and confirms what we already know.

‘There is a growing body of evidence indicating the profound effect engagement in the arts and creativity can have on health and wellbeing. The arts bring us alive, nourish our curiosity, help us learn – they change the places in which we are treated – and make them places we might want to be, they can improve the relationship between clinician and patient, and they give us the courage to face our own frailties and strengths.’

Here is the link to their website where you can find details of the events.
