The Social Biobehavioural Research Group

A new framework from University College London ‚ÄúRADIANCE‚ÄĚ conceptualises more than 30 determinants of arts and cultural engagement within a dynamic multi-level system.

In this webinar we will give an overview of the framework and discuss its practical application. In doing so, we'll explore the barriers people may face to engaging with arts and culture, and the action we can collectively take to address these.

Event speakers:

  • Professor Daisy Fancourt, Professor of Psychobiology and Epidemiology, Head of Social Biobehavioural Research Group at University College London
  • Dr Katey Warran, Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh
  • Nils Fietje, Research Officer at the World Health Organization

This online event is¬†free to attend¬†≤Ļ≤‘ĽŚŐżopen to all, including people working in arts and cultural organisations, policy and academia.
