We are looking for a selection of inspirational projects to showcase at the Future of People Powered Health event on 2 May 2018. The event is organised by Nesta Health Lab in partnership with Power to Change.
Are you a social or digital innovator, campaigner, commissioner or practitioner, helping to create a more people powered approach to health and wellbeing? Do you work with citizens in new ways using social connections, digital technology or creativity? Come and share what you are doing with hundreds of other thinkers, doers and funders interested in health, care and wellbeing.
The Future of People Powered Health 2018 will be an exciting day of inspiration, innovation and action. We want to showcase work that provides new insights to the following question:
What if, working together, we could find and harness the power to make health and care work better for everyone?
Selected projects will be invited to exhibit their work at the event in showcase areas. There will also be an opportunity for a small number of projects to present their work on the main stage. You can see some examples from our 2017 event.
Our theme this year is power. We are looking to showcase projects that can show how power is created and shared by citizens and professionals, communities, frontline staff and senior leaders, and how this is helping to catalyse new and better ways of supporting people to be healthy and happy.
Perhaps you have created new forms of knowledge, collaboration or support by developing new social connections or a new digital platform or device? Or are you supporting people in a new way using art or music?
We will be looking for projects that can offer:
We are also looking for projects that can use creative and interactive ways to share what they are doing. For example, you may be using music or dance to improve health and wellbeing, or have a creative or interactive way of demonstrating a new idea or technology.
Proposals on the shortlist will be invited to:
A small number of projects will also have the chance to present their ideas on stage. We will live stream these sessions and film sessions for the conference.
Projects will be selected by staff from Nesta and Power to Change and we may contact you to ask for additional information to help our decision. We will confirm the selection by Monday 26 February 2018.
