Aesop Institute

Aesop Institute Logo

Aesop Institute is a continuing professional development programme for health and arts professionals with an interest in devising and running successful arts in health programmes. It is a collaboration between Aesop and Canterbury Christ Church University Faculty of Health and Wellbeing.

The programme responds to demand from both health and arts professionals for accredited, quality-assured arts in health training that is tailored to personal learning requirements and fits around busy work schedules.

Aesop Institute aims to enable those working in the health or arts sectors to develop the values and beliefs, knowledge, skills and competencies relevant to the provision and growth of successful arts in health programmes.



Who is it for?
Aesop Institute is suitable for facilitators, practitioners, producers, programmers and key decision makers working in the arts, health, care or charity sectors.

2019 has seen the first cohort of Aesop Institute students come together for residentials in Folkestone and Canterbury and build work-based portfolios for assessment.
