Ben Uri explores the many ways in which art supports and improves mental and physical health and enriches our lives. At a time when health and wellbeing is high on the global agenda, Ben Uri demonstrates how the collection's universal themes of identity and migration can be a unique resource for healthier lives. This exhibition showcases some of the current projects that form part of Ben Uri’s wider programme including work with older people in care settings and those living with dementia, collaborations with refugees and asylum seekers and projects within our wider communities. It also highlights partnerships with leading universities, researchers and therapists, resulting in significant research presented at the Fifth Health Humanities Conference, 2016 (Seville) and the First International Arts and Dementia Research Conference, 2017 (London).
