Culture, Health & Wellbeing Bristol 2013: Conference Update

For anyone not on the mailing list for next year’s International Culture, Health and Wellbeing Conference (being held in Bristol in June 2013), you can see a recent update from the organisers here.

New keynote speakers were announced recently including Shona McCarthy, CEO  Derry-Londonderry City of Culture 2013 and Dr Eddie Rooney, CEO of the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland. Building on the legacy of the 2012 Olympics and the experience of Liverpool as European Capital of Culture, they will be talking when Derry-Londonderry City of Culture 2013 is in full swing – a live account of how a focus on culture can impact on the health and wellbeing of a whole city.  Also, Dr Kate Wells, who has been creating waves with the Siyazama project in South Africa, will give a presentation. This project enables rural traditional craftswomen from KwaZulu-Natal to express their concerns about AIDS and all its complexities through their beautiful beaded cloth dolls.

Don’t forget the deadline for submission of abstracts is 21st December. Check the guidelines here.
