Looking at innovative approaches to improve the Health and Wellbeing of older people

Tuesday 5 & Wednesday 6 September 2017

Day 1: Arts and older people – Local Government

As a World Health Organisation (WHO) Age Friendly City and Nottingham City Council are working closely with the Baring Foundation and Arts Council England to use the arts to enrich the lives of older people. There is consistent evidence that a range of art and music related interventions are supportive in promoting and protecting mental wellbeing and independence. This evidence is incorporated into the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for Mental wellbeing and independence for older people and will be a key point of discussion within the conference. Join us in Nottingham on Tuesday 5 September to hear how different approaches have been championed by local authorities across England and have resulted in positive outcomes for some of the most vulnerable in our society.

Day 2: On Wednesday 6 September inspiring and innovative projects from the Imagine Programme  will be showcased throughout the day. The day will feature the visual arts, digital arts, dance, music and performance.



Organised by Nottingham City Council in partnership with the Imagine Programme and supported by The Baring Foundation

Tickets: 1 Day £28; 2 days £44
