Project Japan : Arts Health and Wellbeing

Screen Shot 2018-08-27 at 15.16.04

Whilst in Kyoto, I was asked to talk about my work within Arts and Health in the UK. I focussed on three projects where art in the environment and participation were key, also introducing some of the other artists who have worked with me. There was a lot of interest from the artists who attended the talk. Most notable for their current activity were artists Izuru  Mizutani, the Director of the Art and Mind Center in Nagoya and Shigeru Nishikawa, who provides art workshops for adults with special needs at Atelier Ripehouse in Osaka. Conversations to follow.
