Collaborative approaches to addressing health inequalities through the arts

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”

Wayne Dyer


Health inequalities are impacting on people in our society like never before. Our colleagues, our friends, our neighbours, our families, ourselves – too many are experiencing poorer health and wellbeing simply due to the circumstances into which they are born, and how they go about their daily lives. 

That’s why LOC in the Lakes 2022 will be focusing on health inequalities, considering how we can think and work differently to improve health and wellbeing for the people of north and west Cumbria. We’ll be looking at how we can take more action now to enable individuals to start well, live well, age well, and die well.

The South Tees Arts Project is innovative cross-sector, locality-based dance and health project in South Tees (Tees Valley).  

STAR involves an active research strand that aims to understand better the physical and mental wellbeing benefits of taking part in dance and wider arts activities and how these support participants through creative and engaging ways to express themselves and develop self-awareness, identity, social and emotional learning skills. 

The workshop will share the journey from conception of the project through to delivery of activity and cover a range of areas including: 

  • Developing a collaborative framework
  • Understanding and amplifying each partner organisations skills, experience and assets
  • Co-production and co-creation as key principals

The session will take place via Microsoft Teams, and a link will be emailed to registered delegates a few days in advance.

LOC in The Lakes 2022 is jointly sponsored by the Academic Health Science Network North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) and the Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative (CLIC).
