Involving Multiform Pedagogy in Arts, Health and Wellbeing Education (ARTHEWE) project partners from Trinity College Dublin/Global Brain Health Institute (Ireland, USA), Turku University of Applied Science (Finland), the University of West Attica - UNIWA (Greece), King’s College London (UK), the Royal College of Music  (Sweden) as well as arts researchers and practitioners from Brazil, Lithuania and the US, the event will offer a space to explore well-being supportive learning experience development processes aligned with diverse arts and embodied practices. In addition, the symposium will provide the opportunity to investigate the potential contribution of artistic methodologies to leadership capacity training.

Professor Carmel O'Sullivan, Head of School from School of Education and convenor of the Arts Education Research Group, Dublin is partaking in the panel who will explore how concepts of “Well-being”, “Arts” and “Creativity” may become a part of aspiration for quality, equity within the training process. What is the cost of bringing the well-being to the center of education? How can arts be an integral part of education, where policy-leadership-research-practice are interlinked?
