Keeping the Conversation Going: Loneliness and Social Isolation
01/07/2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
A free online event in collaboration with members of Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland with the spotlight on creative responses to loneliness and social isolation at this time. Join us to explore the essential role arts and health organisations and practitioners have been playing during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to play beyond it. With inputs from arts and health practitioners and plenty of scope for discussion, join us to discuss ideas for creative renewal, practice and recovery, against the backdrop of the increased loneliness and social isolation generated by the lock-down.
