Creative innovation in health and wellbeing
& our singers: Tom, Louise & Francesca
We design and create innovative interventions for health and social care and beyond.
We bring attention to the vital importance of high-quality participatory arts in the prevention of ill health, promotion of health, and the management and treatment of illness across the lifespan
Since 2017, we have reached more than 4000 people in over 50 diverse settings and online. We mix up opera with musical theatre in works based on peoples’ lived-realities and which follow the science. We are a multi-disciplinary team with human connection and relationships at the heart of all our work.
Health Pitch is led by Camilla, a former healthcare professional, with the help of Francesca, a professional opera singer. Health Pitch was set up in memory of Camilla’s late mother, Davina.
WHO Health Evidence Network synthesis report 67: What is the evidence on the role of the arts in improving health and well-being?
COVID is an unprecedented crisis that will have a huge impact on everyone, whether economically, on health, or on working conditions. Effective interventions, like those of Health:Pitch, are needed urgently to boost morale, enable citizens to feel connected, and to improve the resilience of frontline workers.

Your enthusiasm is infectious, and it’s heartwarming to see that you’ve found something that melds opera with health.
