Alliance Launch

Last week the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance launched in Birmingham. This is a new, national organisation representing everyone who believes that cultural engagement and participation can transform our health and wellbeing. The Alliance is the result of the merger of the National Alliance for Arts, Health and Wellbeing with the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing. It is free to join, you can just sign up here and, in less than a week, more than 1,000 people already have! The Alliance involves 50 leading organisations working in this area and is the result of years of hard work by a lot of people. We are grateful to Arts Council England for the support for this work, the new Alliance will be a Sector Support Organisation and part of Arts Council’s national portfolio for the next four years. It will be advocating for arts and museums’ role in health and wellbeing, sharing best practice, supporting regional networking and training and will provide the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Arts, Health and Wellbeing.
