Ben Heyworth

“My name is Ben Heyworth and I am the new Director for Arts for Health Milton Keynes. I’m delighted to join a small, dedicated team, and a well respected organisation working across Milton Keynes’ arts and culture sector, bringing all kinds of creativity and artistic practice to diverse communities and promoting better health and wellbeing. My background is in the arts and I also have twenty years of experience working in a senior role in the NHS, as well as being a lecturer at the University of Manchester specialising in Cancer, Personalised Care, and LGBT. Arts for Health MK will continue to work closely with Milton Keynes University Hospital, curating the substantial art collection and developing creative outdoor spaces, as well as a post-pandemic relaunch of our Arts On Prescription offer, and establishing a new programme around diversity and inclusion called the Inclusive Arts Programme. As always, we are interested to hear from anybody who might have a project idea or wish to work with us on a collaborative basis.”
