About this event

Exploring what the mental health and heritage sectors can offer each other In a series of talks, challenging discussions and workshops, Health & Heritage will foster lively debate to inspire much needed action on mental health provision and access to cultural heritage as a positive force for healthy, productive communities.

It will provide researchers, practitioners, community activists and policymakers with practical tools and resources, and allow them to develop networks, to empower new projects that address both health and heritage agendas.
