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.
The Arts, Health & Wellbeing Hub
This Facebook group is your place to share knowledge, and keep the sector thriving. In 2022 the week is taking place 16th – 22nd May and the theme is ‘Get Creative, Get Outdoors’. It is free to list events and we will be promoting all over our social media channels. The Arts in Health team relies on the goodwill of our dedicated team of volunteers. We also regularly work with professional artists and musicians on a variety of creative projects across the Trust.
- The Journal of Applied Arts and Health discourages research studies that are predominantly non-artistic in nature.
- 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.

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.

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.
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!
