Committing time to meeting, debating, listening and celebrating, whether formally at events or informally in networks, is building a bank of knowledge that is changing practice. More importantly, this directly contributes to improving the lives of older people.

Arts In Medicine Fellowships Nigeria

Bridging the huge gap between the arts and healthcare system

Arts in Medicine Fellowship was founded in Nigeria in 2018 to bridge the huge gap between the arts and healthcare system. It currently has the largest network of arts in health practitioners in Africa.

They believe there is so much we can do together as a community with the intention of bringing healing, hope and happiness into our communities, hospitals and healthcare institutions. The Arts in Medicine Fellowship includes community-based engagements designed to give insights into the interdisciplinary approach that the fellowship programmes offer for students and professionals in Africa.

Educational and professional development includes international exchange programmes that give a global enriching experience with the world’s leading experts in the field of arts and medicine. The hallmark of our fellowship is ingrained in the Sustainable Development Goal 3 – Good Health and Wellbeing. This is because, the Fellowships employ creativity as a common vehicle of engagement and collaboration in proffering solutions to health related problems.

Dominic Campbell has developed Design Thinking and Health Innovation (Developing Art based Interventions) and Leadership in Arts and Health modules as part of this Fellowship programme, sharing knowledge and making new understanding with hundreds of emerging arts and health leaders across Africa.
