Arts and Health: Careers and Networking

Thursday 6 December 2018
5 - 8pm


FREE, booking essential


Do you want to know more about careers in Arts and Health? Or are you a research student looking to network with Arts and Health practitioners? 

This event aims to put students interested in knowing more about Arts and Health in touch with those working within the field to allow for: 
1) discussion about careers in arts and health
2) networking opportunities to improve communication between researchers and practitioners.

The event is free and is being led in partnership with the Arts Health Early Career Research Network. It will take place on Thursday 6 December in Room 5.21 of Evolution House, Edinburgh College of Art, with the schedule as follows:

5-5.15pm: Registration
5.15-5.30pm: Introductions
5.30-7pm: Panel Discussion - An opportunity for those attending to ask questions to a panel of arts and health experts about their careers and what it’s like to work in the field of arts and health. The panel includes: Chris Fremantle (Senior Research Fellow at Gray’s School of Art), Chris Kelly (Projects Coordinator for Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust), Catriona McIntyre (Arts Activities Coordinator for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity) and Iona McCann (Outreach Manager at Art in Healthcare).
7-8pm: Networking (with wine, juice and nibbles!)

This event is being led by three researchers based at the University of Edinburgh who will also share their experiences of arts and health: Katey Warran, Joy Vamvakari and Liesbeth Tip.
If you have any questions, please contact Katey by emailing katey.warran@ed.ac.uk
