Imagine If...2019 cultural education conference

Wednesday, 13 November, 2019 - 09:00 to 16:00
Great North Museum: Hancock Newcastle upon Tyne

 

Imagine if... creative and cultural experiences supported children's mental health and well-being up to adulthood. That's what Culture Bridge North East is asking at its annual conference this year.

The day will include a mixture of keynotes and interactive sessions on:

  • How children across the region think about their own mental health
  • A young carer’s journey to become a social entrepreneur in the arts
  • Connections between poverty and mental health, and a practical approach to tackling this
  • Practical examples from primary and secondary schools collaborating with artists to support pupils’ emotional well-being
  • How music and theatre have been used to help children explore and understand their own mental health, and
  • How culture and the arts can be part of a supportive ‘habitat’ in school, in which young peopl can make sense of their own experiences and the world around them.
