Storytelling for Health call for contributions

June 21, 2016

AMBU Health Board is holding its very first Storytelling for Health conference. This major international conference will bring together arts practitioners, health practitioners and researchers.

Our aims are to acknowledge and celebrate the importance and growth of storytelling for health and to understand and promote good practice. To this end we are seeking contributions within the following three conference strands:

- Sharing good practice

- Sharing and building the evidence

- Embedding storytelling in health & sustainability

We would be delighted to hear about projects which facilitate communication and build shared language across different cultures (eg: patients and clinicians, artists and commissioners), projects which embed storytelling in training of health professionals, projects which have influenced policy, examples of project evaluations, examples of methodologies or projects which utilise different methodological approaches, case studies from any stage of the life of a project from origination to completion, inter-disciplinary evidence, and explorations of gaps in the existing research.
Further information is available at http://artsinhealth.wales/
Please send abstracts of not more than 300 words to Prue Thimbleby prue.thimbleby@wales.nhs.uk by Monday 3rd November 2016.
The conference is presented by ABMU Health Board in collaboration with The George Ewart Centre for Storytelling at the University of South Wales, The University of Wales Trinity St Davids, Swansea University, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, The National Waterfront Museum and Volcano Theatre.
