Quotes from 2020
"It was a very well structured and complete one week training. Meeting the trainers, being able to ask questions and clarify issues directly with such important women in the field was definitely a privilege. Meeting all the participants, getting to know some of them better, making important personal and professional connections, and feeling part of a world-wide community is totally awesome. So many brilliant engaged beautiful people!"

Highlights from 2019
Quotes from 2019
"The best thing was the people! Katey, Jill and Daisy, and the amazing delegates - I have been on various work related intensives but have yet to be amongst such an inspiring and generous group of people. The creative sessions to start the day were great and as the course progressed, made you really tap into how even short moments of creativity support your day."
"I have to see that the best part, though, was the opportunity to learn from Daisy and Jill first-hand and in person. The knowledge you gain in that time is not something that can be learned in a published article or online course. It was great being able to see the way they think and work through some of my ideas with them directly. It gives me more confidence to do this type of work in the future."
"I absolutely LOVE the approach of looking at arts in health through different lenses and disciplines. I think this is crucial for advancing and solidifying the field and am thrilled to see how established researchers go about it."
Quotes from 2018
"It was so helpful to have an overview of the history of arts in health and also learn about the differences between Medical & Health Humanities, Clinical Humanities, and Arts in Health."
"Fascinating presentation full of persuasive science, images, and videos! I feel so privileged to learn from Dr. Fancourt!"
