UWE Arts in Health courses
In partnership with the University of the West of England, Willis Newson devised and delivered a range of day workshops and short course modules in arts and health in 2011/12 . The courses were aimed at artists and health and social care professionals working with or wishing to develop their skills in using the arts to work with people in health, community and social care settings. The modules offered were Participatory Arts in Health and Social Care Settings and Evaluating Arts in Health Initiatives. They were led by Norma Daykin (Professor of Arts in Health at UWE) and by Jane Willis (Willis Newson Director) with input from leading artists and practitioners in the field.
We are planning to offer these courses again at Willis Newson in 2013. They will not be accredited, but are likely to include the same material and be led by the same teaching staff. If you'd like to find out more, email Miranda Borman with any queries or to register your interest.
