Australian National Arts and Health Framework

Health and arts ministers in Australia have joined forces to publish the country’s national Arts and Health Framework.

The Framework has been developed to enhance the profile of arts and health in Australia and to promote greater integration of arts and health practice and approaches into health promotion, services, settings and facilities. In 2013, the Standing Council on Health and the Meeting of Cultural Ministers endorsed the National Arts and Health Framework.

The framework contains links to a range of information relating to arts and health practice including resources, research findings and evidence of the value of a collaborative approach to arts and health. The framework also provides links to examples of approaches to arts and health.
