Invitation - Arts and Health Symposium, 4th December , 9.15 - 2pm, St Richard's Hospice, Worcester

Dear Colleague



The Worcestershire Arts Partnership (WAP) and its Arts & Health sub group cordially  (New Prescriptions)  invite you to  their  FREE symposium  'A New Prescription for Commissioning' on  4th December 2014  - please see invitation below.


This event will link to the  Arts Council led' Cultural Commissioning for Public Sector' initiative and will link arts and health professionals.

There will be an opportunity to see a recently created arts and health toolkit and to see how this will work on a practical basis as well as an opportunity to see some of the excellent examples of arts and health work across the county.


We hope this will be the beginning of a two way dialogue and journey between the two sectors where artists and arts organisations can meet health professionals and commissioners.


There are only  a  limited number of delegate spaces available and we anticipate that there will be keen interest; and so we urge you to make an early booking by emailing Diane Thomson (details also below) by Friday 21st December 2014.
