The Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health (WCCEH) is a world-leading research centre dedicated to providing innovative approaches to enabling health and well-being across the life course.

Combining expertise from humanities and social sciences, together with natural, medical and environmental sciences, the Centre, which has recently opened at the University of Exeter,  will provide a unique opportunity to work together to address health challenges facing socially and culturally diverse populations.

As part of the launch of the Centre, you are invited to an evening of poetry reading, story-telling and scintillating conversation from Alice Oswald, Kei Miller and a 'living library', taking place at Exeter Central Library, Castle Street, Exeter.

The 'living library' will offer real people out on 'loan' to share their fascinating and moving personal stories about health and well-being, to answer your questions and listen to your thoughts.

This event is free and open to all.

Advance booking essential. Register for your place here.
