The 2017 conference involved over 400 delegates and speakers from 23 countries. Since the publication of the Creative Health report, the field of arts, culture, health and wellbeing seems to be in a state of high energy and we anticipate a lot of interest in the conference. Information on submitting abstracts will be available in June 2020.

We are very pleased that Dr Michael McBride, Chief Medical Officer in Northern Ireland, will give a keynote speech. We will hear about the wonderful Our Future Foyle project, a collaboration between the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the RCA, the Public Health Agency Northern Ireland and Urban Scale Interventions. We are in discussion with the Setúbal Music Festival (Portugal) about bringing their Youth Ensemble to perform at the conference, and with Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, an award-winning composer, whose  piece specially commissioned for Clarence Adoo and his newly developed Hi-Note instrument was first performed with the Ensemble in Setúbal at the 2016 Festival and repeated last month in the 2019 edition.
