Many thanks to all of you who attended the Arts Development UK National Seminar on 1st December in Cardiff. Feedback to date indicates that it was a very informative day. We will be putting various presentations on the ADUK website over the next few weeks (in the Resources section), and I will keep you informed of progress. I would particularly like to thank Clive Parkinson, Director of Arts for Health at Manchester Met University and one of our keynote presenters for sending us a link to you-tube where his presentation can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt6O3Xlsk90
Delegates and other members may be interested in reading “Exploring the Longitudinal Relationship Between Arts Engagement & Health” written by Dr Rebecca Gordon Nesbitt, and references by Clive in his presentation, which can be found here: http://www.artsforhealth.org/research/artsengagementandhealth/
Finally, Clive has also suggested that delegates and members who may be interested in the Arts, Health & Wellbeing agenda visit https://longitudinalhealthbenefits.wordpress.com. The site contains a number of important and interesting original research reports.
