Facing the Future

To kick-start the autumn, LAHF has commissioned a series of blogs about the future of arts and health which we will be publishing daily over the next 2 weeks. The blogs, from leading practitioners working across the spectrum of creativity and wellbeing ask where this work is heading and what challenges and opportunities might open up in the year ahead. The blog series will begin on Monday 10th September and a new blog will be published each weekday until 21st September.

Be More Us

The Campaign to End Loneliness has launched a new movement ‘Be More Us’ which aims to celebrate small moments of connection and inspire people of all ages to share things which connect them to others.

The campaign is inviting people to sign up and share moments of connection “In every conversation, in every relationship, there is an opportunity to be ‘Us’ and find something more that connects us.”

Civil Society Strategy

The Government has launched a consultation on civil society to assess what is working well, and what government can do to strengthen it further. The consultation will contribute to the development of a new strategy designed to maximise the impact of charities, government and business on building communities.
