How cultural experiences can improve health and wellbeing

National Conference: Museums for Health & Wellbeing

The National Alliance for Museums, Health & Wellbeing is holding its first conference at the award-winning Whitworth Gallery in Manchester. The programme will feature speakers from the health, social care and museum sectors who will explore the contribution museums can make to health & wellbeing from a range of different perspectives.

The day will offer ample opportunities for networking and sharing information about museum & wellbeing activities. A ‘market place’ area will showcase museums’ work in this field. Delegates can also take part in a range of practical, hands-on activities in the afternoon, including behind the scenes tours of the Whitworth; mindfulness sessions in the galleries; object handling for wellbeing workshops and walking tours of the gardens. The event will end with a performance and wine reception.

This one-day event is aimed at museum professionals looking to develop their health & wellbeing offer as well as those interested in working in partnership with museums including health and social care workers, artists and art-therapy practitioners.
