Our forum

The Healthy Conservatoires Network provides a forum where members can come together to:

  • receive news and updates on the health needs identified as priorities for performing artists
  • communicate and discuss ‘hot topics’ in conservatoires and provide access to peer support
  • share good practice
  • engage with research, innovation and evidence-informed practice
  • obtain guidance on creating and maintaining a healthy conservatoire

Collectively we aim to inspire and support environments that promote and enhance the health and wellbeing of performing artists, enabling all to achieve their full potential and to build healthy, sustainable careers by:
