A Picture of Health will explore the role creativity and the arts play in children’s wellbeing through online presentations and discussions over two afternoons.

At a time when there is a growing crisis in children’s mental health, this will be an opportunity to hear about projects and practice across a range of settings in which arts are transforming children’s lives. It is part of the special events programme What do you think about when you think about nothing? curated by Lauren Child alongside our exhibition Quentin Blake: Gifted.

There will be four panels on arts in the context of health, learning, community and care. Speakers will include Tony Butler, Director of Derby Museums and founder of the Happy Museum Project, Charlotte Hacking, Learning Programmes Leader, Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, Juli Beattie, AT the Bus, George O’Shaughnessy, Oxfordshire Kindness Wave and Director, Populate co-operative.
