Online Exhibition

In June 2020, we invited expressions of interest from artists to creatively respond to Beyond Measure? We look forward to exhibiting the work in the Autumn period. We’re grateful to Ruth Pitt, Chair of Leeds 2023; Dr Mo Sattar, Leeds-based GP; Fe, artist and LAHWN advisory group member; and Professor Dorothy Monekosso of Leeds Beckett University for making the final selection.
We look forward to sharing the artworks in autumn.

In July 2020, we invited collaborators from the arts and health industry to host a series of discussions via the @UniLeedsCulture account.

Final event

We’re looking forward to 26 November, when we will conclude our Beyond Measure? activities with a keynote address from Dr Daisy Fancourt, leading arts and health researcher based at UCL.

Dr Fancourt's research focuses on the effects of social and community participation on health, with a particular interest in the effects of arts and cultural engagement. She chairs the International Arts Health Early Career Research Network, the UKRI MARCH Network, and is a consultant to the World Health Organisation on arts and health. She co-authored the 2019 WHO publication What is the evidence on the role of health and wellbeing in the WHO European Region.

In a forthcoming article in Public Health, Daisy and collaborators conclude that improving arts and cultural engagement may help reduce health inequalities.
