The arts, health and wellbeing

Author: Arts Council England



This framework outlines Arts Council England’s first formal national strategy for arts and health, complementing the wide range of our current polices and strategies. Our new vibrant communities priority is founded on the recognition that the arts have a major part to play in helping to galvanise community engagement and participation in civic life. We believe that active participation in the arts can have a significant impact on the wider determinants of health such as improving living environments, increasing educational attainment and building social capital. To help us achieve this aim, we have also developed a partnership in government and across the cultural sector with Communities and Local Government
