Check Up Check In promotes solidarity among arts and health practitioners. This national event provides opportunities for participants to share their experiences, exchange ideas and support and inspire each other in their practice through a range of themed presentations. Arts and health programmes comprise a range of arts experiences, presented in healthcare settings, for the benefit of health service users, healthcare staff and artists. This expanding field of work fosters creativity, wellbeing and access to the arts and is based on partnership between the artists, arts organisations and those working in healthcare and/or the wider community.
