Health, Well-being and Cultural Heritage: Research, Evidence and Practice

12 September 2017

The contribution of arts and culture to health and well-being has received considerable attention over the last ten years from researchers, funders and government.

Join us for an NHSF and Tate briefing session in which a panel of experts will present state-of-the-art thinking on this contribution, and their perspective on what needs to be better understood. Participants are invited to debate what kind of evaluation and evidence is needed to fill research gaps and build the evidence base. We aim to ignite curiosity about how heritage science can contribute to this very active area of research and public policy interest.

We hope that this event will inspire new collaborations in health, well-being and culture and that it will encourage participants to think about heritage science research and its application to this field.

This seminar will be of interest to:

  • Researchers and cultural organisations interested in exploring the opportunities for research in cultural heritage and health and well-being
  • People already active in the field of heritage science research
  • Individuals or organisations engaged in cultural and arts well-being initiatives.

This event is held in conjunction with Collection Care Research at Tate. It is offered by the National Heritage Science Forum as part of a series aimed at sharing the ‘state of the art’ of topics of relevance to academic, higher education and heritage sectors to provoke reflection, encourage debate and stimulate collaboration.

This is a free event but registration is required.

Please bring your Eventbrite ticket with you to gain admission.
