Drama for Life, Wits School of Arts and the Adler Museum of Medicine present the Arts in Health Symposium.

This symposium brings together art practitioners, arts therapists, theatre makers and public health researchers who are working and thinking through how the arts are being used to help explore ethical issues on health. It aims to be an exchange on practice and an opportunity to enrich interdisciplinary research.  The symposium will present and explore Drama for Life’s latest creative research work and provide an opportunity to share evidence-based practice. Curated by drama therapist, lecturer and theatre-maker Refiloe Lepere, this symposium is located in Drama for Life’s collaborative approach to interdisciplinary pedagogy and practice, valuing multiple narratives, contexts and indigenous knowledge systems; and will comprise performances, seminar presentations and workshops.
