Umbrella Arts Festival

23 March, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Umbrella Arts celebrates the ways health and wellbeing can be transformed through art. We encourage everyone to get involved.

The Umbrella Arts festival has a number of aims:
AWARENESS: Raise general awareness of the arts and health activity in the city, the roles of the Southampton Art in Health Forum and its partner organisations;
ENGAGEMENT: Encourage more people to engage with the arts to help them with their health issues including build coping and resilience in dealing with long term conditions;
CONNECTIONS: Get health professionals, health and community organisations and arts practitioners connected with each other with a particular emphasis on the social prescribing agenda;
FEEDBACK AND EVIDENCE: Ensure that public feedback, public involvement research and evidence-based practice is central to the day and the health/arts agenda, with local universities and Healthwatch Southampton involvement to help progress these elements.

The event is coordinated by Matt Salvage from SoCo Music Project and Rebecca Kinge from Healthwatch Southampton
