Culture Health & Wellbeing International Conference
SERVICE USER/PATRICIPANT BURSARIES
All delegates who sign up for the conference will be eligible to apply for a free place for a service user or participant that they have worked with. The delegate will be responsible for ensuring that the service user or participant has travel and accommodation and any necessary support provided, where appropriate. We are in the process of securing sponsorship to support these free places and we anticipate there being 8-10 available. We will contact delegates with more details after the early bird deadline in March 2017.
BURSARIES PHASE 1
We have secured funding for a number of bursaries for artists. We hope to offer further artists bursaries and some for early career researchers, in January. If you are unsuccessful in this first round you will be able to apply again.
BURSARY no. 1
Artists working with older people on health and wellbeing projects in the UK
10 Free Places funded by the Baring Foundation
This does not include travel or accommodation
Application with or without an abstract submission
Deadline for applications November 20th 2016
If you would like to submit an abstract to present at the conference (this can be an oral paper, a poster, a practical workshop, a performance or a film) please go through the standard abstract submission process and indicate that you are applying for a bursary when asked. The submission of an abstract will not affect your chance of receiving a bursary but we would like to encourage artists to participate in and contribute to the conference. If you have submitted an abstract, which is successful, and your bursary application is unsuccessful, you will have the opportunity to attend the conference by paying the fee. We will communicate with you about this on an individual basis.
Please send a word document to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Are you a member of Arts & Health South West? Yes/No
Are you also submitting an abstract? Yes/No
