The Northern Art + Health Conference 2024  
Editorial Overview 

Our third Annual Student-Led Conference on the theme of Art + Health took place on Wednesday 27 March from 1.00pm – 5.00pm in The Northern School of Art Student Union.


The programme of activities included conference presentations from undergraduate and postgraduate students exploring health and wellbeing through creative approaches, with over 20 artists, designers and photographers exhibiting work responding to themes related to Art + Health at The Northern School of Art Church Square Campus, Hartlepool.


The early evening programme provided the opportunity to visit the Nature + Ecology exhibition, an exploration of nature, habitat, and the natural landscape through objects and artefacts in the Museum of Hartlepool’s collection curated by the MA Design History students at The Northern School of Art.


This edition of PAD | Perspectives in Art and Design presents eight articles from the conference presenters: Clare Bell, MACHRIST, DbotIllustrates/HEX, Chris Sidney Mould, Ada Malegowska and Neil Bankhurst.
