CREATIVE SKILLS FOR LIFE LAUNCHES £100,000 APPS PROTOTYPE FUND

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2013

Monday 20th May, 2013

4:45pm to 5:05pm (GMT)

The imperative in cancer research and treatment has to date largely focused on attempts to cure patients at every stage of the disease; however there is also growing recognition of the need for treatment with curative intent or palliative care, for which research evidence is limited. 'Creative Skills For Life' (CSL) is a new research lead initiative which aims to inspire young people being treated for cancer and other long-term life-threatening conditions to explore their creative potential as a catalyst for healing and personal development.

Funded by development agency Creative England, in partnership with the NHS Commissioning Board, find out how you may be able to take advantage of a £100,000 fund which aims to support the development of prototype apps designed to enable young people facing potentially isolating situations to interact and co-create with friends and family and engage with a wider world in new, more meaningful ways.
