About Healthy Conservatoires

A Healthy Conservatorie promotes a vision for the creation and development of healthy institutional practices.

These practices commit to improving health and wellbeing throughout its community by:

  • working towards a holistic health and wellbeing provision that addresses a wide variety of factors affecting its performing arts community
  • framing and promoting health and wellbeing in positive ways to enable those within a community to achieve their full potential and build sustainable careers
  • creating an environment that openly embraces and embeds health and wellbeing in all aspects of its culture and community

No two healthy conservatoires are the same, but all:

Encourage Collaboration

Consult evidence
