17 September: The Art of Social Prescribing Conference

Added on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

This week, the ICC is co-hosting the Art of Social Prescribing Conference in partnership with the Cultural Commissioning Programme and nef.

The event has been designed to respond to increasing interest in social prescribing, providing a platform for the latest academic and applied research with particular reference to the role that arts and cultural activities play in health sector-led referral schemes.

During the conference, the ICC’s Kerry Wilson will present findings of the AHRC-funded Art of Social Prescribing project, alongside ICC colleague Gayle Whelan and Professor Rhiannon Corcoran of the Heseltine Institute of Public Policy and Practice.

Participants will also have the opportunity to hear more about the Museums on Prescription research programme via a keynote talk from Professor Paul Camic, Research Director, Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology, Canterbury Christ Church University.

Further information on the conference and how to register can be found on the event listing.
