US Report on Arts, Health and Wellbeing

An American network of artists, activists and community leaders has published a major report billed as a road to ‘Art and Wellbeing: Toward a Culture of Health’. The report includes a number of UK examples of good practice and offers a US perspective on challenging health inequalities through culture.

The report is published by the US Department for Arts and Culture, which is not a government agency but a grassroots movement of social activists. It draws heavily on the All Party parliamentary Group report Creative Health published last year and provides practical guidance on developing new relationships in health.
