“I hold strongly that the arts can enhance wellbeing and health and that more needs to be done through public policy to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to benefit from the life-enhancing and therapeutic experience of the arts. We need to learn from best practice in this fields across the world.” Lord Howarth of Newport
Welcome to the new Culture, Health and Wellbeing international exchange website. It is the legacy from the Culture, Health and Wellbeing international conference in Bristol UK, in June 2013.

At the Culture, Health and Wellbeing international conference in Bristol in June 2013 there was a call for further international collaboration and exchange. This website will help foster connections and encourage dialogue. In the future we hope to plan and fundraise for an international exchange programme.

Take a look at the International Links. Colleagues from around the world will be sending updates from their countries every six months. Contribute to the blog and get some discussions going. Or just browse through the resources from the Culture, Health and Wellbeing conference under the programme tab.

Please get in touch with your ideas via the Contacts page
