Sustainability is a big word – and so at AHSW’s Annual Conference this year, they will be exploring different dimensions of sustainability in relation to arts and health practice, including planet health and human health, models for spread and capacity building, and the funding and policy context, and social prescribing developments. Through keynotes, speakers, panel discussion, open space, and creative workshops, you will have an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities for sustaining practice.
Philippa Forsey, our Creative Wellbeing Manager, and members from our peer-led groups, will be speaking at this conference as part of a panel discussing Learning & Workforce Development. Topics will include how to support sustainability in peer-led groups and how to develop projects that are focused on developing an appreciation for the environment through the use of creativity.
