Following on from the ACHWS event on the arts and older people, this event will focus on the role of arts and culture on the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

Bringing together a range of arts and health practitioners, this event will discuss the impact and issues but also look forward to the role the arts can play in recovering and reshaping the future. The impact on the mental health of children and young people has been huge and the full extent of this is still unknown.

What creative ways can we work together to improve health and mental wellbeing of young people in Scotland?
