In partnership with Created Out of Mind and Canterbury Christ Church University, the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) presents an exciting day of presentations, discussions and artistic experiments about how the arts and sciences, working together, can help to understand dementia.

Ongoing and emerging world-class research will highlight some of the advances the arts can make to dementia research and care. Several of our projects will be discussed during the event, chaired by Created Out of Mind Co-Director Paul Camic, who is Chair of the RSPH Special Interest Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing. 

Our Director Sebastian Crutch will also deliver a keynote speech, alongside Lord Alan Howarth of Newport, Co-chair, All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing and David Cutler, Director, The Baring Foundation.

The conference welcomes practitioners from older adult and public health services, artists working with people with dementia or planning to do so, health and social care commissioners and academic researchers.

More information and booking can be found here.

This event is sponsored by the RSPH Special Interest Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing (who sponsor this event).
