City of York Council and the Creative Festivals Partnership (Age of Creativity, Get Creative Festival, Creativity & Wellbeing Week) are coming together to host an event dedicated to the influence of everyday creativity on public health.

5-a-day? 3 times a week? What should our creative prescription be to achieve health and wellbeing throughout our lifetime? Join us to hear from leading academics and then debate whether this message needs a public health campaign. 

We will focus specifically on the role creativity has on both mental health and social connectedness, hearing from a spectrum of expertise to explore the complexity of making creativity a prescription for life and what we can do as a collective to make the message clear for population health.
