The opening and closing events for London Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2013 have now been announced. We are delighted to announce that theatre maker and cultural commentator Bonnie Greer will deliver the second annual lecture to open the week on the evening of 17 June. Once again the lecture is a collaboration with Community Learning at Tate Modern and will build on the success of AL Kennedy’s lecture last year. The title of the lecture and details of how to book tickets will be announced shortly – but save the date!
Alongside material from three years of blog posts for The Guardian are a collection of essays and transcripts of live performances including “To Save Our Lives” the opening lecture of last year’s London Creativity and Wellbeing Week.
Planning has begun for the next London Creativity and Wellbeing Week to take place next June. Building on the success of the first ever Creativity and Wellbeing Week earlier this year, LAHF has begun preparing for next year.
