JAAH provides a vehicle for high quality research and forward-thinking scholarly activity embracing multifaceted understandings of aesthetic modes of engagement. Contributors include eminent and experienced workers and scholars in the field, but JAAH strongly encourages cutting-edge contemporary and experimental work from emerging practitioners. JAAH provides a prominent platform for artistic research in addressing the art as evidence base in applied arts and health. It provides a forum for publication and debate of arts in health care and health promotion.

This APPG inquiry into existing engagement of the arts in health and social care was made to make recommendations to improve policy and practice. A lot of arts in health work happens at grass roots levels, in community based programmes that address both clinical and social determinants of health. Our aim is to provide a proactive national alliance, which will offer strong networking and advocacy to increase public awareness and understanding of the role of arts in health nationally and internationally. We will encourage best quality practice, shared ethics, research and evaluation, excellence in process and product, while celebrating and supporting the passion and drive of the many arts in health activities which make a difference. London Arts and Health supports artists and health professionals across the whole of London and beyond, promoting excellence and engagement in the field of arts and wellbeing, and extending the reach of the arts to communities and individuals. Many people are excluded from mainstream arts opportunities, yet it is often these people whose health and wellbeing could be most enhanced through such engagement.

Participating Journals

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. Over six years it has amassed over 700 key documents and aims to be the permanent online resource for the growing range of professionals as the arts and health sectors grow and become more pertinent to addressing key health issues both in the UK and internationally. The Repository for Arts and Heath Resources houses a range of ‘grey literature’ and other resources not easily found on the main websites dedicated to covering arts for health practice as it has grown and diversified. At the heart of the Repository is an online, searchable database, housing over seven hundred documents that chart the development of the Arts and Health movement in the UK and internationally, from 1996 onwards.
