Project Description

The Arts and Culture for Health and Wellbeing sector is in a period of rapid growth. The positive evidence base is well established and has been disseminated through reports including the 2017 Parliamentary report on Arts, Health and Well-Being Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing and through national bodies including the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance. Activities which take place under this remit are wide ranging across art forms; visual arts, music, theatre, dance, and across contexts; care homes, secure units, hospices, community centres, secure mental health units, GP surgeries.

Much of the work for artist facilitators in this sector is offered on a freelance basis. This raises the following questions:
•Who is responsible for the occupational health of these creative facilitators?
•How is this responsibility manifest such as through training, mentoring, support structures?
•What does it take for artists to practice well in this sector?
