A Culture of Care: Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance conference

A Culture of Care, the national Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance conference will be held on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 March 2020 at Derby Museum. The theme will be Care: care for one another (participants, practitioners, commissioners); care for the environment; and caring economies. More information will be released soon, but for now please save the date.

CHWA are hoping to secure funding for free spaces, particularly targeting people with lived experience of the impacts of health and freelance creative practitioners in the East Midlands - watch this space.

Join the CHWA (for free!) to receive a special mailout mid-December with news on tickets, and the first annual awards. The awards will focus on CLIMATE, PARTNERSHIP and PRACTITIONER WELLBEING.

For full detail, please check the Culture, Health & Wellbeing Alliance website.
