The National Alliance for Museums, Health & Wellbeing will be holding its first conference at the Whitworth Art Gallery on 2 March 2016. 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 opportunities for networking and sharing information about museum & wellbeing activities. A ‘market place’ area will showcase museums’ work in this field – download the open call for pop-up stands and/or posters by clicking on the link below if you are interested in participating.
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.
