About Creativity and Well-being Week:
London Creativity and Well-being Week has now become a crucial feature in the capital’s cultural calendar. There is a growing body of evidence indicating the profound effect engagement in the arts and creativity can have on health and well-being. 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. With debates and discussions, performances and exhibitions, tours and practical sessions, the Week is an opportunity to find out more, make connections, be inspired, and shape the future of arts, creativity and wellbeing.
