Welcome to our first Love Arts festival in Leeds. The Love Arts Festival has been brought to you by Leeds Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust and the Arts and Minds Network. We are delighted to be partnering with so many amazing art organisations across the city to explore connections between the arts, mental health and wellbeing. Our festival is the culmination of eight fruitful years developing links between arts, mental health and wellbeing through our Arts and Minds Network.
Our aim is to develop the role of the arts in health and social care, whilst enabling people who may feel excluded to take part in the rich cultural life of Leeds. We harness the power of the arts to explore mental health issues such as identity, stigma, social justice and even happiness!
