Perpetual Movement symposium

99 Upper Ground London SE1 9PP
from £60

a symposium on dance and health

Rambert’s three-year programme supported by City Bridge Trust explores the therapeutic and well-being benefits of dance in a variety of healthcare contexts, from providing regular dance classes for people living with Parkinson’s or Dementia, to working with patients in hospitals and day centres.

To mark the conclusion of this programme, we’re hosting a day-long symposium bringing together arts practitioners and administrators with healthcare professionals to share their experiences, learning and insight. The day includes panel discussions, practical sessions, performances and a keynote speech from Dr Daisy Fancourt, Senior Reserch Associate at University College London and author of the new book Arts in Health: designing and researching interventions, published by Oxford University Press.

There is a choice of sessions throughout the day so you can structure your programme to align with your particular areas of interest or expertise, as well as plenary discussions and networking opportunities.

Places cost £60 – £80, including lunch and refreshments, available to book from Wed 13 September.
