Medway and Kent Dance Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Symposium, April 201929-Mar-2019
A one-day interactive symposium is being held at the Historic Dockyard Church in April 2019, and will include talks and presentations with a mix of evidence-based and academic research, good practice, projects and work in progress.
The speakers and presenters will be drawn from the arts and creative industries, academia and the public sector.
Aims of the event are:
- To create the foundations to give the health and well-being sector partners an opportunity to build partnerships with the dance, arts and cultural sector and find out more about each other’s work priorities and vice versa.
- To bring health and well-being sector partners and dance, artists and creative industries together to explore tangible health and well-being outcomes and highlight new ways of working.
- To present evidence-based research across a variety of age groups, from children and young people to older adults for example; tackling childhood obesity, improvement of mental wellbeing and cognitive function and reduction of cardiovascular risk, risk of falls and social isolation.
- For the health sector to share their priorities and work areas and explore how dance and the wider arts and cultural sector can help contribute and compliment health priorities in Medway and Kent.
The day is designed to create positive discussions and ideas that are open, constructive, collaborative and forward-thinking.
