The event turns our gaze outwards with a series of generative questions that connect our work with other urgent and transdisciplinary global agendas and brings together many different perspectives around the emerging field of health humanities, including that of Professor Paul Crawford and Vic McEwan, two active members.
Professor Paul Crawford
is pioneer within the field of health humanities. He is a Professor of Health Humanities at the School of Health Sciences and is the Director of the Centre for Social Futures at the Institute of Mental Health at the University of Nottingham. He is a keynote speaker at the event and will be discussing his current project, “What’s Up With Everything? Health Humanities and the Injectable Society”, in which he collaborates with Aardman Animations to support young people in creating five short films with the aim to support mental health literacy of young people.

He aims to use his work to contribute to and enrich broader conversations about the active role that the arts sector can play in reimagining a better world. His current project, ‘Face to Face’.
