About

DECLARATION will take place at Summerhall in Edinburgh from 2-3 March 2017. The festival is the result of a unique partnership between the Mental Health Foundation, the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), NHS Health Scotland, NHS Lothian, the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Strathclyde and the Scottish Recovery Network

The organisations behind Declaration have come together as part of Scotland’s National Action Plan on Human Rights (SNAP), and the programme is based around the SNAP themes of Better Culture, Better Lives and Better World. The festival is continuing to explore the First Minister’s vow to ‘do even more even better on incorporating human rights in Scotland’, and is part of an on-going commitment to the right to health and social care in Scotland.
