Our work is focused on creating more opportunities for Londoners with the least access, and the most to gain, to engage meaningfully with the arts. We deliver a yearly Creativity and Wellbeing Festival that went from a small London festival to national in 2019 and saw over 50,000 attendees taking part in around 600 events. With their unique mixes of varied contributions from Original Research to Review Articles, Research Topics unify the most influential researchers, the latest key findings and historical advances in a hot research area! Find out more on how to host your own Frontiers Research Topic or contribute to one as an author. You can also read more about our work here, our network here and our governance here. Creative activities as an important source of enjoyment, connection, solace and meaning throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

  • We know that many of you are keen to get involved in cultural social prescribing but don’t know where to start.
  • The Cultural Cwtsh is full of creative ideas and fun activities and is designed to lift spirits and boost the wellbeing of staff working across the NHS and the Social Care sectors in Wales.
  • Established in 2016 by Professor Stephen Clift, on behalf of the Special Interest Group for Arts, Health and Wellbeing within the Royal Society for Public Health, the Repository was made possible through funding from the Lankelly Chase Foundation.
  • All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.
  • We created and launched a new digital tool, pARTner up to support the Thriving Communities Funding bid, which encourages cross-sector partnerships and supports cultural organisations of any size to be on an equal footing.

Articles which need major revision and/or a second round of reviews will require additional time and will be considered for a later issue. We are holistic in approach and believe the arts and humanities have a crucial role to play in medical training, clinician wellbeing and awareness. We believe the arts help us to see and value the patient as a whole person, not just an illness or symptom. We believe the arts will contribute to a culture within health services that is more supportive, empowering, enlightened, personal and humane. We are the leading support sector organisation, advocate and expert for arts and health in London. Through our activities, we work to promote, develop and support the understanding of what the arts can do to contribute to a healthy society, in London and nationally, and by so doing to encourage the use of the arts in settings beyond the mainstream.

The Repository

Most are directly available as free downloads and are accompanied by the relevant citations. We deliver arts and health training and creative wellbeing sessions to health care staff to bridge between the arts and the health sector. We champion, support and connect people interested in how arts and culture can have benefits for health, care and wellbeing in Leeds. It also has links to the key research centres and departments pivotal to the development and establishment of robust evaluation and research. These centres and departments have been concerned with building theoretical models and robust secure evidence to explain and document the benefits that the arts can bring to health and wellbeing.

Particularly, it provides a chronological overview of the significant publications not captured by major research databases, that have documented and guided the development of the Arts and Health field in the UK over the last twenty years. It does not include peer reviewed papers as these are included in a range of other databases and repositories. Partner Up allows you to search for artists, cultural and creative freelancers and organisations across London. Our database can help match you up with the right practitioner or organisation to work on partnership bids or other creative collaborations. Save the date of our next member’s event in partnership with Forum Central on Thursday 30th June at 3pm.

Arts & Health South West is a learning, advocacy, networking and development organisation. We want more people to experience the arts and culture for the benefit of their health and wellbeing. We provide learning programmes and resources, advocate with decision-makers and funders, deliver networking events, and support the development of partnerships and collaborations. The aim of the report is to improve awareness of the benefits that the arts can bring to health and wellbeing, and to stimulate progress towards making these benefits a reality in the UK.

Arts For Health

A varied programme of patient and staff-focused creative activities and performance as well as artistic enhancements across our five sites. We work in partnership with the Facilities and Estates to create artwork for any new ward developments and buildings – to enhance the environment for service users, carers, visitors and staff. Works of art can create a welcoming, uplifting space that increases a feeling of wellbeing and promotes a positive experience of care. We strongly advocate original art commissions, sensitivity to aesthetics and the introduction of nature into medical and other healthcare settings. We welcome your contributions to the Repository to help consolidate it as the ‘Go To’ place for all key Grey Literature on the growth and development of the Arts and Health fields both here in the UK and internationally. So if you have any key documents you think should be added then please use the online Submission Form here and we look forward to hearing from you.
