The second annual London Creativity and Wellbeing Week takes place from 17 - 22 June 2013.
According to the London Creativity and Wellbeing website; "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."
The week is filled with debates and discussions, performances and exhibitions, tours and practical sessions. There are plenty of opportunities to discover more, be inspired, make connections and actively explore the future of arts, creativity and wellbeing.
