‘Policy makers, health officials and practioners and artists themselves can come together in a higher intelligence and a greater ability to create, monitor, and foster…even predict…well being and good health’ Bonnie Greer
London Creativity and Wellbeing Week will present a range of activities in London focusing on improving health and generating wellbeing through various artforms. The week will include exhibitions, performances, talks and workshops. There will be over 60 events throughout London in hospitals, galleries, cafes and care homes with many being free.
The exciting events showcase some of the creative work that can help improve the health of individuals and communities. There are a growing number of artists and organisations working across London and nationally, bringing together the arts and health to help promote positive outcomes for people to improve their lives. Research shows that life expectancy, health and wellbeing improves if people engage in the arts*
London Arts in Health Forum (LAHF) believes that the arts, culture and creativity has a pivotal role in people overcoming health issues. The organisation supports artists and health professionals across London and reaches communities and individuals who would otherwise be excluded.
