Can the Arts Save Us?

13 May
Brewery Tap

More and more councils are promoting social prescribing, or what is commonly called ‘arts on prescription’, but surely the arts can’t replace medicine?! Isn’t this just a way to save money? What can the arts and community activity do for us anyway? Take part in a ground-breaking live experiment made especially for the festival by Coney, and hear from advocates of social prescribing across Kent, including: Professor Paul Camic, Research Director, Salmons Centre; Susan Potter, co-author of Non-Clinical Community Interventions; Nick Ewbank, Research Evaluator for arts on prescription; Madlin Bee, Take Off; Dr Robert Stewart; and Emma Hanson, commissioner of Live Well Kent.
