Conversations about Arts, Humanities and Health

Conversations about Arts, Humanities and Health is a series of free, online events where scholars, health professionals, and the public discuss how arts and humanities can inform healthcare. Hosted by The University of Kent and with the support of the Churchill Foundation, these events seek to develop meaningful dialogue and connection between humanities and medicine.

Each conversation features a central guest with whom we discuss the fruitful interaction between arts, humanities, and health in their career. Attendees will also be able to ask guests for insights about best practice, challenges, and pitfalls. Afterwards, we will disseminate the conversations as podcasts, alongside a summary of key ideas on this website and through social media.

Conversations about Arts, Humanities and Health is a joint initiative by Prof Ian Sabroe and Dr Dieter Declercq. Ian is a retired Consultant in Respiratory Medicine (Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) and Honorary Professor of Medical Humanities (University of Sheffield). Dieter is Senior Lecturer in Film and Media and Co-Director of the Centre for Health and Medical Humanities (University of Kent).

When is the next live event?

Ian and Dieter will be talking to Dr Michelle Chiang (NTU Singapore) on Friday 17 February, 9-10am GMT. Registration will open soon.
