Great to be part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week again and fanstastic to see how the regions have taken it on board. We get loads of inspiration from all the events and seeing the part Qube is playing as part of the bigger picture
Our festival relies on participants and we hope that many come into contact with the transformative powers of creativity and culture during the week. Our new website should make it really easy for you to see what is going on in your local area and to find events which interest you. Many events are aimed at people who have no current interest in arts and health, although you may be surprised to find that actually you are already involved… If you like listening to music, dancing or visiting exhibitions then you may have already experienced an uplift in mood or wellbeing without knowing you are participating in arts and health. All the events will be listed on the website so keep an eye out and also make sure you follow the conversation on social media. We will also have a newsletter with highlights of the festival and hope to produce some area guides. If you are interested in the festival then please tell everyone you know! We rely on word of mouth as much as anything to spread the word. We hope that by attending events you will encounter the transformative effect creativity can have on your wellbeing and health.

Important Announcement

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2020. As a festival focusing on health and wellbeing, we feel as though it would be irresponsible to encourage public events at this time. We understand that this is not yet official government advice, however, given the timing of the festival, we are concerned that it will be taking place at a possible peak of the virus.

This is a fast-moving situation and is entirely unprecedented for all of us, so please bear with us as we navigate the next few weeks.

For those who have already put time and resource into events, we are sorry this is happening. There is nothing to stop you deciding to host events of course, and we will leave you to make that judgement, however, at this stage, we will not be marketing or hosting any events using the Creativity and Wellbeing banner.

Currently, we see this very much as a postponing and will be following advice around rescheduling the week later in the year. We are also looking into ways we can host some kind of virtual or digital festival in that week. If you have any ideas, please let us know.

We know that this is a worrying and unsettling time for many, and we need creativity and connection more than ever. We will be doing all we can as organisations to support our members and keep connections active.

Best wishes Jenni, Neil, Victoria and Hayley
