Boost student and staff wellbeing through your existing arts programme


Come to this semi-practical session exploring the positive benefits of the arts, and how to make the most of your existing arts offer to support the wellbeing of students and staff. Find out what the latest research is saying about the impact of the arts on wellbeing, and how you can translate this into simple, effective strategies for your school. Finally, take part in a group music making experience with singing expert Sara West (singing teachers and Meryl Streep’s vocal stand-in for Mamma Mia), and leave with the tools to deliver simple arts activities, that do not require specialist knowledge in your school.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
