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. Delegates will learn practical tools, innovative techniques and approaches, meet some fantastic people and enjoy experiencing first hand everything that successful partnerships between health and heritage organisations have to offer.

Key themes:
-Public health and heritage: working together to meet increasing demand
-Architecture of extended use: built environments for healthy, happy living
-Adapting religious heritage to better meet the needs of modern communities

Programme:
Days 1 and 2 include keynotes, practical workshops, seminars, discussions and optional drop-in therapies, and also allow delegates time to explore and experience Quay Place.  Day 3 is an optional field study day, visiting sites and hearing from professionals around the scenic and historic Suffolk Coast.
