Creating Wellbeing. University Museums in Scotland (UMIS) conference

3 Jun 2021, 10.30AM–5.00PM
Creating Wellbeing. University Museums in Scotland (UMIS) conference

The Health and Wellbeing of our communities is of the utmost importance, and perhaps now more than ever given the challenges thrown up by 2020 and the Covid pandemic. In recent years there has been an emerging picture of the positive impact that engaging with the arts, culture and creativity can have on physical and mental health and general wellbeing.

The conference ‘Creating Wellbeing’ explored this area in more detail, calling on experts in the field and using practical examples from within museums, the arts and culture. It focussed particularly on the creation of wellbeing and health – in other words the application of targeted projects and programmes aimed at a range of audiences with different needs and requirements.

The event was aimed at those working within culture, the arts, and more generally towards the health and wellbeing of students, broader communities and under-represented groups. The day provided a mixture of presentations, panel discussions, and other sessions.
