First National Museums and Wellbeing Week (29 February - 6 March 2016)

The National Alliance for Museums, Health & Wellbeing is coordinating the first annual Museums and Wellbeing Week will take place from 29 February to 6 March 2016. This will showcase the inspiring work museums across the UK are already doing in this field. It will be launched with a roundtable on Museums and Health for the All Party Parliamentary Working Group on Arts & Health set up to raise awareness of what museums can offer around wellbeing.

We need you!
We want to mobilise as many museums and networks as possible to show off your established projects. You might be a local authority museum, or a museum with medical collections, or a museum already running health & wellbeing programmes for your local community, or a volunteer-run museum exploring ways to become more sustainable or a museum of any size interested in health and wellbeing. 

Get involved!

Showcase what you are already doing and badge up your existing health and wellbeing programmes and activities
Develop new activities or run a one-off activity
Set up a pop-up information stand for an afternoon or even an hour with a member of staff, volunteer or freelance artist
Publicise your events through Twitter with our hashtag #museumsandwellbeing
