Sustainable Communities and the Tees Valley - Arts, Place and Well-being
The theme of this conference, a part of the 175th anniversary celebrations of Durham University, reflects the University’s commitment to seeking to help enhance the quality of life and health and well-being of people in the Tees Valley.
The links between the arts, health and well-being is a particular interest of Sir Kenneth Calman and is central to the work of the University’s Centre for the Arts and Humanities in Health and Medicine. Jointly organised with the North East branch of the Royal Society for the Arts, it is also part of an on-going collaboration between the University and the Society to stimulate debate and involvement with these issues in the region. Some 70 people attended the event, both listening to a series of excellent presentations and participating in lively discussion about the issues raised.
