The Arts Development UK National Seminar held on 1st December 2015 in Cardiff was a great success. Feedback from delegates indicates that it was a very informative day. We have put links to the various presentations at the foot of this page.
Clive Parkinson, Director of Arts for Health at Manchester Met University was one of our keynote presenters. He provided us with a link to YouTube 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/
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.
