VHS ran a meeting on the 1st of July in collaboration with members of Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland to shine a spotlight on creative responses to loneliness and social isolation at this time. We explored the essential role arts and health organisations and practitioners have been playing during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to play beyond it.
At the meeting we were joined by:
- Robbie McGhee, Chair of Arts, Culture, Health and Wellbeing Scotland and Associate Director, Art in Hospital
- Jan-Bert van den Berg, Director, Artlink
- Claire Stevens, Chief Executive, Voluntary Health Scotland
- Christina Liddell, Choreographer and Catriona MacIntyre, Arts Activities Coordinator, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity
