In previous years, the Cultural Institute has hosted an annual 'Arts and Health' conference at the University of Leeds, bringing together professionals from the academic, health and cultural sectors.
This year, we'll be doing things a little bit differently. Instead of hosting a one-day event, we've moved the conference online for a programme of digital engagement over a number of months, building a dialogue towards a final day of activity on 26 November.
Beyond Measure? started in July 2020 with themed Twitter chats with a variety of topic experts. These will inform the development of more focused activity from September, which might involve webinars, panel discussions, and performances, for example.
The 2020 programme is in collaboration with the Centre for Cultural Value, and Leeds Arts Health and Wellbeing Network, with generous support from the Oakley Memorial Fund.
