We are delighted to announce the first in a new series of lunch-time research webinars run by the Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC) at the University of Bristol.

Good Grief: Co-creating a public engagement festival’ will be led by Dr Lucy Selman, Founding Director of Good Grief Festival, and Dr Lesel Dawson, the festival’s Arts and Culture lead.

Good Grief Festival (Twitter: @GoodGriefFest) was launched in October 2020 and aims to provide opportunities for people to learn about, reflect on and share their experiences of grief. Dr Selman and Dr Dawson will describe the development of Good Grief, and reflect on their experiences of creating a festival which has reached an audience of over 20,000. They will share what they have learned by working with non-academic partners and offer insights on how integration of the arts and sciences can help us to reach new audiences.
