Performing Medicine

Welcome to Performing Medicine’s summer newsletter. After a busy first half of the year, we are happy to share several exciting programme developments and invitations with you.  

From a new Primary Care Cultural Ambassador Network to a brand new year long Performing Medicine professional development course here at Clod Ensemble’s beautiful Skylight Studio, there is plenty coming up in the second half of the year. We’d love you to be a part of it!  

You can read more and sign up for opportunities below. Don’t forget to follow us on social media if you’d like to stay up to date with all our activities.  

  • A new one year training programme to begin in January 2024
  • Led by Suzy Willson, Carly Annable-Coop and Associate Artists

For over two decades, Performing Medicine has been pioneering arts-based learning within hospitals, medical schools and healthcare settings across the UK and internationally. We create supportive transformative environments where people can develop skills to provide respectful, compassionate care –  improving the health and wellbeing of our communities.

We are now opening the doors of our studio in London’s new Design District on the Greenwich Peninsula to share the expertise, skills and research that underpins our practice – helping students to harness the power of arts in healthcare contexts. 

This course will appeal to a range of people interested in the intersection of arts and health keen to develop their working practices and understanding through a year of deep and focused learning. Artists, medical educationalists, members of the healthcare workforce and others will learn alongside one another. 

To express your interest in the course and to secure a place on the introductory taster session in September, October and November, please email our Communications Manager at

Warm wishes,

The Performing Medicine Team
