Healing Arts Scotland

Registration is now open – get involved and join us for Healing Arts Scotland 2024

We are delighted to announce that Scottish Ballet will be partnering with Jameel Arts & Health Lab to launch Healing Arts Scotland 2024, in collaboration with the World Health Organisation.

Healing Arts Scotland will be the first-ever nationwide Healing Arts campaign, which will involve a week of celebrating and advocating for improved physical, mental and social health through the arts.

The initiative will launch on 19 August 2024 as part of the Edinburgh International Festival and will include celebratory performances, exhibitions, public art programmes, workshops, dialogues, media partnerships and a high-profile policy moment.
