A masterclass for anyone.
This session will consider the value of the arts in supporting the development and wellbeing of children and young people, in family, community and school settings. Attention will be given to current public health challenges facing children and young people, particularly in relation to mental health and issues associated with diet, exercise and obesity, and what role the arts have to play. There will be an opportunity to consider recent initiatives drawing on theatre, music and dance in promoting the health of children and young people. The innovative Breathe Arts Health Research project on magic and hemiplegia will also be examined.
Facilitated by Stephen Clift, Professor of Health Education and Director of the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, and Dr. Jonathan Barnes, Faculty of Education, Canterbury Christ Church University.
