6th July 2010: REACH Final Learning & Dissemination Event

a joint REACH and Arts & Health South West Meeting 

10am-4pm

The REACH projects in Bristol, Devon, Dorset and Somerset have involved 18 health, arts and community organisations in partnership working to deliver on key public health priorities.

This event will be an opportunity to learn about some of the challenges and achievements in areas such as engaging hard to reach participants, working with BME communities, older people, mental health, and healthy living. REACH has been evaluated by Step Ahead Research and they will be talking about their findings on the effectiveness of arts and health partnerships as a means to deliver arts and health projects.  

This will be of particular interest to those working in Bristol, Devon, Dorset and Somerset as there will be an opportunity to discuss ways of developing future partnership work at breakout sessions in the afternoon.
