Training for artists working in healthcare settings



At last … I can tell you!
The training programme Beauty and Utility Arts ( are partners on with Creative Leicestershire and Willis Newson is now open for applications.

The course, starting April 18th consists of 4 days of tailored training for artists with experience of running participatory arts projects in community or education settings, who wish to extend their practice into health, or for artists with experience of working in health settings who want to improve their skills and extend their knowledge.

Day One: The Context for Arts and Health: research, policy and practice

Day Two: Safe and Ethical Practice within Arts and Health

Day Three: Leading effective arts projects in health and social care settings

Day Four: Marketing and Presentation Skills: Bringing your arts and health project to life

The programme also provides mentoring and placement opportunities with Beauty and Utility Arts.

At the end of the programme there will be a sharing day enabling the artists to promote their practice to a wider network of potential commissioners and collaborators.

For this course you will need to be based in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland but we aim to take training out to other areas in the near future. Information and application details can be found at

Please share with your networks – bookings must be placed by 11th April.

Many thanks.
