Excited to be hosting our first conference

We’re excited to be hosting our first conference on Thursday 16th June 2016, in partnership with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and part of Peopling the Palace(s) and London Creativity and Wellbeing Week. The conference will bring clinical, arts and public health practitioners and academics together to debate issues around the arts and health and wellbeing, specifically the connections between Theatre and Neurobiological Attachment.

The conference is now fully booked, but we’ll be tweeting throughout the day and will post updates here on the website after the event.
