Queering Creative Health - LGBTQIA+ Health and Well-being, via Creativity

This year’s LGBTQ+ History Month theme of the year is ‘Medicine’. This UK-wide theme celebrates LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to healthcare both historically and today. At De Montfort University, we are celebrating the 2024 theme by exploring LGBTQIA+ leaders in the field of ‘Creative Health’.

Creative Health describes artistic activities that support health and well-being, as well as innovative approaches to health and social care. From singing for lung health, to doing arts in the park for community well-being. It can include artistic approaches to health research, or even the way we conceptualise the relationship between health providers and their patients/participants.

At this event, we will hear from LGBTQIA+ researcher, Yasmin Jiang, alongside Frances Williams, Health & Research Lead at Queer Circle. The duo will give a 20-minute talk about their work exploring Creative Health with LGBTQIA+ communities. They will then be joined by Jane Hearst, Midlands Associate at National Centre for Creative Health, who will facilitate a Q&A session with the audience.

Join us at this event if you are interested in creative ways to stay healthy and well, or if you are interested in hearing about the importance of adapting policies, procedures, and provisions around the unique needs of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Bookings will close 1 hour prior to the start of the event, and registrants will receive a link to join the online event 2 days before the event, via their provided email address.

Please contact DMU Events Office on if you have any questions.
